Me and My mom loved it. I love both version...I love the original recipe and my low fat version also :) I decided to play with the recipe a little bit, I made it low fat.
I used 1/4 cup sugar, 2 Tablespoon vegetable oil 4 Tablespoon applesauce, 1 egg and everything else the same. I baked it in 8inch square pan. It was very moist and yummy. It tasted just like banana bread! I left out the frosting too :)
