Mom's Banana Bread

Submitted by: DARK_BLUE

Introduction

Thick, reasonable slices of banana bread (not dinky pieces to make the calories less). Best if using bananas that are slightly past perfect eating ripeness.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    .625 (about 5/8) cup all purpose flour
    .625 cup whole wheat flour
    1 cup mashed ripe bananas (ones too ripe to eat are perfect)
    1/4 cup salted butter, softened
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    2 large egg
    1 tsp molasses
    1 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1 granny smith apple, peeled and finely diced

Directions

Makes one loaf, 8 1-inch slices.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour one medium (8 1/2 inch) loaf pan.

Smash bananas on a plate and set aside. Peel and dice one medium green apple and set aside.
In a medium bowl stir and toss together the flours, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix together the butter and sugar until blended. Stir in the banana and eggs until completely mixed (don't worry if the mixture looks curdled, it's the chunky banana and the moisture in the mixture).
Combine ingredients in both bowls and add the apple.

Spread evenly in the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 55-65 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cook completely.

Makes one loaf.
