Almost Vegan Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
YIELD: 1 loaf




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter and flour loaf pan. (I use a stoneware loaf pan and only oil it slightly.).
  • In a medium bown, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  • In a small bowl, mash bananas. Mix in milk and vanilla.
  • In large bowl, beat shortening with electric mixer until creamy.
  • Gradually beat in sugar with shortening.
  • Add eggs to shortening one at a time, mixing well after each.
  • Alternately add the flour and banana mixtures to shortening mixture in two additions.
  • If you like nuts in your bread, add them here and use up to 1 cup.
  • Pour into loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle nuts and brown sugar on top and press into batter slightly. (This helps them to stick better after it's baked.).
  • Bake for about 1 hour 10 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
  • Cool at least 5 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
