Several years ago when I actually went home to visit my parents more often, I seemed to develop this tradition of making banana bread every time I went home.
We didn't have regular applesauce, only the strawberry squeeze pac, which K refuses to eat. Score...now I've used them all! And K got to squeeze it in. The only problem was the clumps of flour that turned up as I cut into it! Ha! I decided to just stir the batter. Actually, to let K stir!
She LOVES to stir and, since I use the mixer most of the time, she doesn't get to stir much. Oh well...you can eat flour, right?! ;-)
Facebook Banana Bread adapted from Facebook (unfortunately, I don't know where it came from originally!)
2 cups whole wheat flour (used all purpose)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (used two of those kids squeeze packs because it's what I had!)
3/4 cup honey (about 2/3 cup)
2 eggs, beaten
3 mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5
inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In
a separate bowl, mix together applesauce and honey. Stir in eggs and
mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour
mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted
into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10
minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
