The yummy goodness of my Banana Bread

If you have been following my blog, you already know that I have become obsessed with baking. 

If you are new to my blog, let me catch you up.....I am obsessed with baking right now!!  You are now caught up :) 

I am a newbie and still learning the tricks of the trade.  My favorite thing about baking is being able to eat what you have just created when it is fresh out of the oven!  I wanted to share my banana bread recipe with you guys, so you can make some as well. 

*Is it sad that I now buy bananas, with the hope, that we won't eat them, so that I can make them into banana bread??  Just curious!

Here's my recipe:

2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup of butter (I only buy Country Crock and I melt it in the microwave 1st)
3/4 cup of brown sugar (packed into the measuring cups)
1/2 cup of cinnamon applesauce (to replace 2 eggs, lightly beaten)
3 to 4 overripe mashed bananas

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and lightly greasing your 9X5 loaf pan.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl cream together butter and brown sugar. 

Stir in applesauce and bananas till well blended.
Add banana mixture to flour mixture and gently stir until just moistened.
Pour mixture into loaf pan. 

Bake for 60-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
My cooking time has been less than 60 minutes both times I have baked it.  I start checking at around 55 minutes and have taken it out around 58 minutes. 
Let your banana bread cool for a few minutes in the pan on a wire rack.
Then take banana bread out of pan and cool completely on the wire rack.
This is some yummy goodness that is perfect for breakfasts or snack time!!
I hope you guys enjoy the recipe!!
What is your favorite thing to bake??
