Apple Banana Bread
It’s National Banana Bread Day! How are you celebrating? 😉 Why not make this tasty recipe by Kate!
Papa Knitschmidt has quite the sweet tooth and likes to bake. He has made some amazingly yummy treats! When Chalupa Boy was a baby I worked for Papa for a while. There was always some kind of mini candy bar or chocolate nugget of one variety or another in the jar on his desk. But my favorite days were the ones when Papa had been baking and there was something wrapped up waiting for me.
I promptly stole the recipe for his Apple Banana Bread and shared it with the Colorado Moms. It quickly became an institution. It’s famous, I tell you! You know you want to make some…
- 3 apples, peeled and grated
- 3 bananas mashed
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice (non-essential, just to keep fruit from browning during prep)

- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
