Apple Banana Bread

We took the kids apple picking last weekend, and I couldn't wait to start baking with our selection!  My husband has been asking for an apple pie, and I'll get there, but I needed something easy to do that first night.

I loved this recipe because it gave me a use for some of the bananas in my freezer.  It was nice and sweet and made a great breakfast the next morning.

Apple Banana Bread
very slightly adapted from

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 or 3 peeled, chopped apples

Beat sugar, eggs and butter. Slice in bananas. Let mixer do the mashing. Add baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, and flour. Fold in chopped apples. Fill greased and floured bread pans 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.


  1. I like the combination of fruit - bet it was super moist.

  2. I am definitely making this one! Thanks!

  3. Hahaha--it's in the oven! (But no apples--I had one apple,and it turned out to be rotten! Boo!)

  4. This looks too delicious to pass up!

  5. I made this one last week and my 6 year old loved it! (I did too) - he's asked me to make it again for him

  6. If this tastes even 1/3 as good as it smells than OMG!! My house smells AMAZING!!!

  7. I just made this with my two girls, we added 1/2 a cup more of sugar (we are big on sweets in this house ;) ) and also added chopped walnuts, also I find if you combine the vanilla in the bananas it holds the flavor better. YUM! 5 out of 5 children loved it! INSTANT HIT! :)
