Banana Bread

One of the wife's recipes that a friend of ours likes, is her home-made babnana bread. Our friend would bring 2 or 3 bunches of bananas just so she would make it. It's an easy recipe and one I'm sure you'll like.


  • 3 Ripe bananas (mashed)

  • 1 Cup granulated sugar

  • 2 Large eggs

  • 1/2 Cup shortening

  • 2 Cups all purpose flour

  • 1/2 Tsp. baking powder

  • 1 Tsp. baking soda

  • 1/2 Tsp. salt

  • 1 Tsp. vanilla

  • 1/2 Cup crushed walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9"x5" loaf pan.

In a large bowl combine sugar, shortening, and eggs. Beat in bananas. Add remaining dry ingredients and combine. Fold in nuts. Batter will be thick.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes or until done. Insert a toothpick in center to check for doneness. If toothpick is clean when removed, the bread is done.

Remove from pan and cool.
