|Julian's Banana-Nut Bread|
The recipe below uses about 3-4 ripe bananas for a single loaf. The recipe is easy to double and comes out fine if you do so. I use non-stick dark baking pans which will provide more of a crust on the loaf. These I spray with food release (Pam). If you are using traditional shiny loaf pans, grease and flour the pans to ensure the loaves come out easily.
1 cup sugar (or 1/2 cup Spenda Baking Mix)
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups ripe bananas, mashed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup applesauce (optional, see note above)
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Grease the loaf pans (see note above).
