How to make Banana Apple Bread & What is in Banana Apple bread?
- 3-4 ripe bananas
It is important to use ripe bananas to give that yummy sweetness to your banana Apple bread.
- Chunky Applesauce
I added chunky homemade Applesauce to this recipe, but you can surely use store-bought. If you want to taste chunks of apples, then be sure to add chunky Applesauce. You certainly can use regular Applesauce if you desire.
Eggs are essential & add flavor to the flour. You will need two eggs for this recipe. When adding your eggs, add one egg at a time & mix well.
- Baking soda
It helps to give the bread the much-needed height, and without it, your bread will fall flat and won’t taste good.
- Vanilla extract
Vanilla extract is a common baking ingredient found in most recipes; it helps with flavors without overpowering them.
- All-Purpose flour
You will need two cups. Then, you can get that tasty crumb from the bread once it is baked using all-purpose flour.
- Cinnamon (optional)
It is a great flavorful addition to help combine the flavors of apple and banana.
It helps with dissolving sugar.
- Walnuts (optional)
How can the Banana Apple Bread be stored to keep it fresh?
You can store freshly baked bread in the refrigerator or place it on a plate, cover it with plastic wrap, and leave it on the kitchen counter. If covered and stored on the counter, it will stay fresh for 3-4 days. Any longer than that, it will dry out & it will begin to get mold.
Can you freeze Banana Apple Bread?
Yes! Wrapping the bread securely in a layer of foil and place the foil-wrapped package in a freezer-safe storage bag and store it in the freezer. The bread should stay fresh for about two to three months.
Can you toast Banana Apple bread?
You sure can! It is my favorite way to eat it. Warm & toasty! Add a little butter & powder sugar, and also would be a wonderful dessert to serve with tea or coffee. Enjoy!
FYI Baking time may vary due to what loaf pan is being used. If using cast iron, additional time may vary.
What can be served with Banana Apple Bread?
The bread is delicious when you toast it & add a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This is my favorite. It also can be toasted. Add some butter & sprinkle some powder sugar for a sweet treat!
