I tweaked my traditional banana bread recipe to come up with this one. My kids & hubby love it right out of the oven. It is quite moist with the addition of applesauce. Right before baking I sprinkle the top with "Sugar in the Raw" turbinado sugar, it gives the bread a nice crunchy topping. Use the ripest bananas you have for best results!


  1. Cream together the sugar, splenda, shortening & applesauce. Mix in the eggs & bananas. Sift the flour, salt & soda together & add to mixture. Pour into a prepared bread pan. Sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar.
  2. Bake 1 hour at 340.
