Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a full size bread pan with nonstick cooking spray and lightly dust with flour. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add bananas, applesauce, milk, oil and vanilla; mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir flour mixture into banana mixture, mixing just until blended. If using walnuts, fold them gently into the mixture at this time. Pour batter into prepared pan making sure not to fill more than 1/2 full. Bake in preheated oven until golden and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cooking time is about 1 hour. Immediately remove bread from pan and place onto a wire rack and let cool.
