About Me

My photo
I have recently gotten into baking more and trying more challenging recipes to bake. I have had a lot of successful recipes. I also love to craft and pick up on any new craft talent that sparks my interest. I love to be with my friends and family and if I am not doing that I usually am running or site seeing.

Banana Bread

3/4 sugar
1/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (3 small or 2 medium bananas)
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts.

Cream together the shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time until well beaten after each additional egg has been added.

In an additional bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.

Add 1/3 cup of the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture. Then add 1/2 of the banana mixture. Continue to add another 1/3 cup of the dry ingredient mixture. Add the rest of the banana mixture. Take 1/3 cup of the dry mixture and mix together with the walnuts. Add the last part of the dry mixture, and and then the walnut mixture.

Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.

Pre-heat oven to 350 and bake for 45-50 minutes until the middle comes out clean. Enjoy!
