It's a little cooler today than it's been lately and it's supposed to be around 50 degrees on Saturday so I'm making my favorite banana bread. Well, that and I have some bananas that are turning brown. :o)
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mashed banana
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first 4 ingredients together in a bowl and set aside. Cream the sugar and Crisco together in a separate bowl until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat well. Combine the banana and milk in a separate container. Add to the creamed mixture alternating with the flour mixture, mixing after each addition just until smooth. Stir in nuts if you're adding them. Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan. Pour banana bread mixture into the loaf pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean. Makes 1 loaf.
This is a big hit in my house. I hope it will be in yours.
