Banana Bread

Comment on this recipe

My aunt gave me this recipe back in 1946. It's also my family's favorite.

Ingredients

1-3/4 cups flour
1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Crisco
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup mashed bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 to 3/4 cup nut meats, chopped (walnuts or pecans)

Instructions

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside. Cream Crisco and sugar, then add flour mixture, banana and vanilla and mix well. Add nuts, if desired. Pour into a 3-1/2x7-1/2 inch bread pan which has been greased. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
