I made this last year and it was awful. When it came out of the oven, it looked like a brick and my kids made a face. It was unpleasantly soft on the inside. I tried the recipe again today and followed the advice of other reviewers by adding 1 t vanilla, doing a combo (half c and half c) of brown and regular sugar, using less banana, adding 1/2 t nutmeg, 1/2 t cinammon, and 1 t baking powder, and cutting the temp to 300 degrees. Then I baked it for 65 mins and it came out perfectly, ten times better than the original recipe. The original recipe just has too many bananas and not enough flavor.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar free applesauce
3/4 cup honey
2 eggs, beaten
3 mashed overripe bananas
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
n 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.
