Mom's Banana Bread

Niky @ The House on Silverado
The classic banana bread recipe that my mom used to make.
Course Quick Bread
Servings 10 slices


Mix together:

  • 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

Add in:

  • 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.
