Banana Bread

This is my tried and true recipe.  I always come back to it.  This was taken from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, but modified to my taste.

Banana Bread

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp cooking oil

Add-ins (can do 1 or more):
1/4 cup caramel pieces
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup diced peaches

Grease the bottom and sides of loaf pa.  Set aside.  Mash bananas in large bowl.  Add egg, sugar, oil, applesauce and cinnamon.  Stir in flour, baking powder, and baking soda just until moistened.  Stir in add-ins of your choice (our fav is pecan/caramel bits combo).

Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
