Mom's Banana Bread
The one my mom used to make, and the only banana bread worth making, in my opinion!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup Crisco shortening can replace with butter, but I prefer Crisco like Mom used
- 2 beaten eggs
- 3 mashed ripe bananas
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts I use walnuts
Blend ingredients well and pour into one loaf pan, lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes in a 325 degree oven.
Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.
Store in an airtight container for several days. I like to microwave for a few seconds to serve each slice warm.
