    Fauve's Note:

    This not "just another" banana bread. I've made it time and time again throughout the years. It's from an old and yellowed recipe clipping (50 plus years old) from my local newspaper that my great aunt had written her own success notes beside. My aunt was a caterer, and she writes that this banana bread was her most requested treat for her teas and luncheons.

      I just realized that I never reviewed this even though I've made it several times. Those durned bananas just WILL go to mush at times and I need to do something with them. I like the texture of this bread--I think it's the shortening that makes the difference. I often use 5 bananas rather than 4 because I'm never sure if the ones we get here are long enough to qualify as medium.

      Very good. This bakes up into a lovely looking, very tall loaf that slices beautifully. This is not overly sweet and has just the right amount of nuts to balance the flavor. A little less moist than I prefer, but still a very good recipe that would be a good choice for gift giving.
