It's Apple Season! By Donna Fasano #Recipe #SweetRomance

Fall has arrived and that means it’s apple season! I love to cook with apples, especially tart granny smith apples. Here’s one of my favorite fall recipes.

Banana Apple Bread

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4  teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup sugar
2 large, ripe bananas
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tart apple, grated
1/2 cup walnut pieces

1.     Preheat over to 350°F. Prepare a loaf pan using non-stick spray.
2.     Mix together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, sugar. Stir until combined.
3.     Add the banana to a food processor. Pulse to mash. Add the milk, molasses, oil, and vanilla to the processor bowl and process until smooth.
4.     Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Add the apple and walnuts, stir just until evenly distributed. Do not over mix.
5.     Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for a bit before removing from pan.

One of my sweet romance that takes place in the autumn is MOUNTAIN LAUREL. Laurel’s teen sister is going off the rails, so Laurel kidnaps her and takes her off to the mountains. Once she’s there, Laurel meets a gorgeous forest ranger who agrees to help her in a hair-brained scheme. Before it’s all over, Laurel’s heart is in jeopardy! I hope you’ll look for this lighthearted, fun read.

  2. I love this time of the year. It just puts me in the mood to bake. I'd say my favorite apple recipe is apple pie. So good fresh from the oven.

    1. I love apple pie. I just baked 5 dozen cookies. There's nothing I like better than to be up to my elbows in flour.

  3. Looks delicious. Thanks for the recipe, Donna!
