Bread recipe

I had a request for the Banana Bread Recipe on my previous post. It is truly "Manna from Heaven", just see for yourself. I got permission from Enid to post her "secret" recipe on my blog and she being so willing to please me (just kidding!), actually because she is so willing to share what she can, gave me her blessing.

Banana Nut Bread

2 1/4 cup Flour
1 2/3 cup Sugar
1 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Shortening
2/3 cup Buttermilk
3 Eggs
1 1/4 cup Mashed Ripe Bananas (I find frozen black bananas taste better, make sure you defrost them first) (When you are saving the bananas, just leave them in the peel and throw in freezer, makes for easy storage.)
2/3 cup Chopped Nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour loaf pans. Beat Bananas first in mixing bowl. Add all ingredients except flour into mixer bowl. Blend 1/2 minute on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Add Flour and beat 3 minutes on high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pans. Bake 45-50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool and wrap in plastic wrap to keep moist. (we know how yucky dry banana bread is!)

Can't you just fax me some? That's what we say in our family. I guess I'll just have to try to make it myself. Sounds good! :)

Oh, yum! Thanks for posting this recipe. Now I just have to hide the bananas so the kids don't eat them before they can get good and brown... :)

We tried the "manna" bread recipe and it was devoured!!! I also put old bananas in the freezer (was that something you shared with me years ago?). Erin just made a smoothie with one!! Still partially frozen. Yum!!!
