How to Make Banana Carrot Bread


  1. Combine banana, sugar, oil, applesauce and eggs.
  2. Sift dry ingredients and fold into banana mixture, then add carrots and nuts.
  3. Pour into a greased 9 x 5" loaf pan and bake at 350º for 55 minutes or until done. Cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan. Cool thoroughly before slicing. Makes 1 loaf.
  4. NOTES: A double batch fills 9 baby loaf pans - bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Makes great Christmas gifts. Also good with coconut or raisins stirred in. I have also used almonds instead of walnuts.
