Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the shortening and sugar. Mix in the bananas. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
* This recipe is from my friend Ayalla — It makes a heavy, but moist, loaf of banana bread.
* If you use more than 3 normal-size bananas, I suggest that you lower the oven temperature and cook for a while longer. Otherwise, the crust comes out almost overcooked while the middle remains moist and almost undercooked.
: Difficulty: easy. : Time: Preparation: 10 minutes; baking: at least 95 minutes. Allow some time for cooling. : Precision: Approximate measurement OK.
