Vegan Banana Bread and Applesauce

I made some awesome banana bread...and made my own applesauce (remember me being cheap and not wanting to pay $4 for a jar of applesauce :P)  It's awesome and moist and banany...I did have to use a round pan because I don't have a "normal" bread pan.  The Pan I used is about 9 inches across and 2-3 inches deep.

1 1/4 C Sugar ( I used Demerara sugar is raw cane sugar)
1/2 C Vegan Margarine (softened)
1/2 C Applesauce (I made my own and it was AWESOME!)
1 1/2 C Mashed Ripe Banana
1/2 C Soy Milk with 1 Tbs Vinegar (or lemon juice) in it.
1 tsp Vanilla
2 1/2 C Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt

Move Oven rack to low to the top of the pan is nearest to the center of the oven and pre-heat the oven to 350F/180C.  Grease bottom of loaf pan depending on size of pan you might need 2.) 
Mix Sugar, Margarine and stir in applesauce until well blended.  Add banana, milk, and vanilla beat until smooth.  Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until moist.  Pour into pan(s) and bake. 
I baked this about 1.5 hours because of the pan I was using...but I usually bake banana bread at least 1 hour then check with the wooden toothpick. 
Cool for 10 mins in the pan then remove and allow to cool for 2 hours before slicing if you can help it...I never can hence the missing edge of my bread:


For the AppleSauce I peeled, cored, and quartered about 5 apples and stuck them in the pressure cooker with 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and let them cook for 10 mins on full pressure.  I used granny smith apples and got about 1 1/2 cups sauce...it's perfectly tarty-sweet.  Without a pressure cooker I read you can simmer the apples for about 20-30 mins.  Then mash up with potato masher if needed.
