A Bread to Make Any Day Better

One of my favorite breads is banana. If you are like me I always have very ripe bananas around the kitchen. And trust me no banana is ever too ripe...

I whip up this simple recipe every once in awhile to satisfy my sweet tooth. It goes great with your morning coffee or tea.

Banana Nut Bread

1/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 ¾ c. sifted ap flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 c. ripe bananas
½ tsp all spice
1 c. walnuts

Cream together shortening and sugar; add eggs and beat well. Sift together dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with banana, blending well after each. Stir in nuts. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
