Goin' Bananas

I swear that the mister always buys more bananas that we can possibly eat just so that I will bake another loaf of my grandmother's banana bread. A great way to use up those over-ripe bananas - its very easy, and a tasty treat for breakfast or any time!

What you'll need:
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening (Crisco)
3 over-ripe bananas
2 eggs
3 tsp. cold water
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder

To make:
In mixing bowl, cream together sugar & shortening; add bananas, eggs and water, and mix until all ingredients are well blended.

Combine remaining dry ingredients and add gradually to the banana mixture.

Pour batter into bread pan and bake @ 350 degrees for 45 min.- 1 hr. (bread should be browned on top and "spongy" to the touch.)

Hey Mo, I hope you're having a great week too!! My husband loves banana bread, I think he secretly likes to let the bananas get really ripe so that I'll make it! I'll try this one! Thanks!!

Hello, Ladies,

It must be a 'man thang', Kristina, a scheme for baked goods, or something!

It really IS easy, Court, and if you try it let me know what you think; the mister seems to luv it (I'm not overly fond of banana bread, so, I go by his judgment! lol)

Hope you both have a wonderful weekend ahead!
