Gram's Banana Bread

Recipe by Queen of Harts

I know everyone has their own favorite way to make this! Here is my Gram's recipe. I decided to add it to Zaar since it is just a little different (no walnuts!); plus I won't loose it this way. She used butter flavored Crisco sticks for shortening. Updated 6/11 - I tried this out with whole wheat flour and it came out just as yummy as all purpose flour. Try it!
