Mom's Banana Bread

This recipe comes from my mom whom I believe got it from my grandma.  When I was little I always looked foward to Mom making this banana bread. We would eat it for dessert, as a snack and even smeared with  butter for breakfast. When mom would make this she almost always saved me a little bit of batter (my all time favorite batter by the way) and if she knows I'm coming over she still saves me a little even today!

  • Use ripe or even slightly over-ripe bananas, you want just a little bit of brown to them. The flavor and texture just blends better that way.
  • This recipe calls for shortening, don't try to substitute it with butter or vegetable oil because it will not work!

Mom's Banana Bread

1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix together mashed bananas, shortening, sugar and eggs. Slowly add in flour, baking powder and salt and beat well to combine. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
