DIRECTIONS

  • Cream sugar and shortening.
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt together.
  • Add mashed bananas and buttermilk to creamed mixture, then add flour.
  • Add the vanilla and the nuts, stir well.
  • Cook in well greased and floured loaf pans for one (1) hour at 350 degrees.
  • Watch to see that they don't get too brown.
  • This is delicious with softened cream cheese spread on the slices when served.
  • My mother loved to make these loaves and give to friends at Christmas.
