Cinnamon Apple Banana Bread

I just made this today.  I tasted it so I could tell you how it was, even though I’m not supposed to eat wheat. It’s sooooo good! I’m definitely going to have to make a gluten free version!

Linda's Lunacy Cinnamon Apple Banana Bread


1 cup sugar
1/2 butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 cups flour
2 apples, peeled, cored, and chopped.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 2 bread pans.

In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter together. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. In another bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork, then add to the sugar mixture.

In a separate bowl, mix the baking soda & flour together. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture. Mix until all ingredients are moistened. Add chopped apples, stirring until they are incorporated into the batter.

Bake at 350 for one hour, covering the tops of the pans lightly with aluminum foil. Remove the foil, bake for 10 more minutes or until a toothpick  inserted in the bread comes out clean.

  5. Well, I read between the lines and was able to figure out what was supposed to happen and made two batches of this for the office and friends. Came out good and am making some more tonight to use up the bananas in the freezer. I have one apple left and then will sub in some shredded zucchini and nuts. Simple, easy and good.
