Banana Bread

This recipe comes from Mamaw.


½ Cup Shortening ¾ tsp. Baking Soda
1 Cup Sugar 3 Lg. Ripe Bananas
3 Eggs ½ Cup Nuts (Walnuts or Pecans)
2 Cups Flour 1 tsp. Vanilla


  1. Cream shortening and sugar together until fluffy. (This takes quite a while!)
  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Add flour and baking soda to egg mixture.
  4. Blend in mashed bananas, nuts and vanilla. (Don’t mix too much here!)
  5. Bake @ 350° in greased loaf pan for approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes. (Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If it comes out clean, bread is done.)

This bread freezes very well for up to 6 months!
