homemade banana bread...

this is my grandma's recipe and the BEST banana bread recipe I have ever used! I like to smash up bananas and FREEZE them ahead of time...then thaw them out the day I make the bread...and I add not only the bananas..but all that wonderful JUICE too. I also add MORE than just 2 bananas...usually 3 or even 4...and it is just superb!I decided to bake mine in a bundt pan this time is the recipe:

1/2 cup shortening (I used butter Crisco)
1 1/3 cups sugar

Beat those 2 together to cream well.

2 or 4 bananas smashed up and juice if you froze them ahead of time and thawed out
2 Tablespoons milk

Mix in 2 eggs

Finally stir in:

1-3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon soda
1-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

NUTS if you like...

Bake at 350 degree oven for 30 minutes...then turn oven down to 325 degrees and bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes!

When we lived in G'ville, Teaford would give dad a paper sack full of over-ripe bananas & mom would make b.bread. I have older friend that makes me one about once a month; has pecan pieces in it. Finished it yesterday.....
