"WAY too much sugar! If you’re using overripe bananas, only add 1/2 or 1/4 cup sugar. A little vanilla extract goes a long way too."

"Like a lot of banana bread recipes, it was hard to get the middle done enough without the edges getting too brown. The bread still tasted good and I like the idea of using applesauce instead of butter or shortening."

"In response to KatiPage about substituting the applesauce with butter, this can be done, but may change the texture slightly. I would only use 1/2 cup of butter in place of the 1 cup of applesauce. Let us know how it turns out if you try it."
