I found this in a cookbook and it was from my Aunt Lynda. It is the best banana bread I have ever found.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup shortening (I use margarine)
- 3 ripe bananas
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda (I use baking powder)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup nuts (I use pecans chopped very fine)
- Mix all ingredients together. I use a food processor.
- Place in a loaf pan.
- Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
Great banana bread! I used lite butter instead of shortening and used the baking powder as you suggested. I baked in mini loaf pans and got 4 light and moist little loaves. Not too sweet with great banana flavor - really enjoyed this bread - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
This was really easy to make! I creamed the sugar and shortening first (habit, I'm afraid), then read the directions, and added everything else. I popped it in the oven, and it made a lovely loaf with a very simple banana flavour - perfect!! I hope my pics turned out, because DH had taken the slices I cut seconds after I walked away with the camera! It's that good! I did use the baking powder. I think I'd like to try it again with the soda and see what the difference might be. :) This is a very simple, perfect banana bread that I will make again, and again. Thanks, Cinisajoy!

Delicious! I love banana bread, and this recipe is awesome in that it uses 3 bananas! How cool is that! Made as directed, using organic shortening. Thanks, Cinisajoy! Made for PAC Spring '09.
