Banana Bread

This has been with us forever! I love to make it.  When I bake this  I make extra for Britt to take back to college with her.  The recipe is easily converted to muffins as well.
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 T milk 1 cup mashed banana

Stir the flour, powder and soda and set aside.  Mix the sugar and shortening with a mixer until light.  Add eggs and milk and beat until smooth.  Add flour mixture and banana alternately to the mixture. Turn the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 60-65 minutes.  If you are making muffins no need to bake so long.  For the topping brush melted butter on the bread towards the end of baking and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar! YUM! Enjoy~

  1. Mmmm. Not much beats the smell of banana bread fresh from the oven. Maybe apple crisp, but that's it!
