Rustic Apple Banana Bread

I love baking from scratch and everyone in the house enjoys it too! Whether acting as assistant chef or taste tester the whole fam is involved...and happy! We eat a ton of fresh fruit in our house but once in a while things start to go bad before we get to them, in this case it was our bananas. Not wanting to waste anything, and not having quit enough bananas for regular banana bread I decided to make a variation of my mama's banana walnut bread. My banana bread doesn't have walnuts and does have APPLES...well apple sauce for moisture!!
Ingredients Needed
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
2 Eggs
1/4 Cup Shortening 
2 Soft Baninis
1/3 Cup Apple Sauce

SO simple!
Start with preheating your oven to 350
Throw it all together in a large mixing bowl and mix! I used an old fashion hand mixer (luckily my husband volunteered  his muscles for this one, sadly he opted out of a photo) but if you have an electric one more power to you because this is a THICK batter! 

Bake for 45 minutes. I like to bake it for 42 minutes then remove the pan from the oven but allow the bread to continue to cook for the remaining three minutes. If you opt to cook your bread the whole 45 minutes in the oven remove the bread from the pan immediately and place on a cooling rack.
