Banana Nut Bread

I am so excited to share one of my favorite holiday recipes... Banana nut bread. This recipe is easy and so good!! It comes from my Aunt's old Christmas cookbook she got at a church rummage sale. I hope you will try it and love it !!
Banana Bread Recipe
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 soft, ripe bananas, mashed
Cream sugar and shortening; add eggs, flour, soda, bananas, and chopped nuts. Pour banana bread batter into 1 greased and floured loaf pan; bake at 325° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This banana nut bread recipe makes 1 loaf.

This sure sounds delicious. I had to google shortening though. I think it's something anglo saxon and not available in continental Europe. Do you think I can use butter as well? Thanks!

Yummy! I will be trying this one! It will be great for the holidays! Love the cover on the cookbook. said...

Lili, Do you have Crisco? I am not sure about butter but it may work I know I use butter for everything and my aunt who is a great baker does too. It makes cookies so much better then margarine.Angelina

Banana bread is always yummy. For Lili - I never use shortening or Crisco - always butter. It tastes so much better and is more natural.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Thanks everybody for letting me know that I could use butter. I'll let you know the results (no Crisco up here either, or perhaps under another brand name).
