i made my own applesauce for this in my blender with the peel. I couldn't find it in the search so I used the next best thing, but I'm sure it would make a difference. I also sprinkle in some bran for added "kick" lol

Pumpkin bread with a bit of banana for moistness. This was invented when one can of pumpkin was too much for one batch, but not enough for a double. A couple of tired bananas solved my problem!

Fudgy Brownies
Very Good 4.2/5
(231 ratings)

Instant coffee in the batter intensifies the chocolate flavor. Beating the sugar and eggs together gives the baked brownies a crackly surface.

You can make this healthier by using whole wheat flour and leaving out the chocolate chips. They have a very moist, fluffy texture.
