Brown Sugar Banana Bread

This is similar to my normal banana bread recipe, but uses brown sugar instead of white. It's nice and moist and very tasty.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup applesauce (you can also use 1/2 butter if you wish instead of applesauce)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3-4 mashed overripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together applesauce and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

I always use brown sugar in my banana breads, even when it calls for white. I just think they stronger flavor of the brown sugar goes well with the banana.
