Banana Bread Recipe

How to make Banana Bread
My grandmother Mary's recipe

  • 3 Ripe Bananas (I actually used 3 jars of Banana baby food)
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/3 c Melted Shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 c Flour
  • 1/2 c Chopped Nuts (totally optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Grease or spray a bread pan
  3. Mash bananas (or add the baby food) in a large bowl
  4. Add sugar and melted shortening to bananas
  5. Beat in egg
  6. Add the rest of the ingredients
  7. Mix well
  8. Pour into the greased/sprayed pan
Bake for 40 minutes 

If you are unsure that it is done, stick a toothpick through the center, 
if it comes out dry then the bread is done baking.
