Banana Bread or Banana Cake

banana cake or banana bread
Whether you call this banana bread or banana cake, it is a favorite dessert in our family. When I buy too many bananas and at least two brown ones are sitting on a shelf, it is time to make the banana cake.


  • 2 (or 3) ripe bananas
  • 1 cup sugar (I used white sugar, but you can try brown)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • optional: cinnamon and/or chocolate chips

Mix eggs, banana and sugar until creamy. Add oil, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in the flour last. Add to a baking pan, and bake for 45 minutes to one hour at 350°.

It’s probably a good idea to store this cake in the refrigerator.
