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.
