Banana Bread Recipe
So. . . we start where we left off yesterday. Thawing bananas that have been frozen. This batch of 6 bananas will make 2 loaves of bread.
Cream together:(beat on medium speed for 2 minutes)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup applesauce
2 eggs and beat for 30 seconds
3 bananas (cut open the end of each banana and smoosh out the insides like you are squeezing toothpaste out of a tube) This part might gross you out!
Add: (mix together until blended well)
2 1/2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
Then add:( mix together until blended well)
remaining 3 bananas
2 tsp. real banana extract
Divide batter between 2 greased loaf pans. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes and remove from pans.
Allow to cool completely before slicing unless your little next door neighbor comes over and askes for a piece of "banama bwead" first.
This recipe is for 2 loaves of bread. I usually make 2 batches at a time because I have 4 loaf pans. I use one loaf right away and wrap the others in foil and freeze them. It's always nice to have a loaf on hand to give to someone. Whenever I am making a meal for someone at church, I always take them a loaf.
