Grandma’s Banana Bread

Wow, this recipe is so good. It is so easy and it never fails! I use this recipe at least 3-4 times a year. The only thing I don’t add is the nuts because I personally don’t like nuts in my banana bread, but others say it is great that way too. The banana bread always turns out crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. I love it with a little butter. Enjoy!

Grandma’s Banana Bread
Doubles easily for 2 loaves

1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sour milk (add 1 tsp vinegar if you don’t have sour milk)
1 tsp baking soda – dissolve in the milk
1/2 cup shortening (crisco)
2 cups flour
2 mashed bananas

Cream sugar and shortening together well. Beat in the eggs. Add mashed bananas. Blend in flour alternating with the milk/soda mixture. Start with flour and end with flour. Add the nuts.

Bake in greased loaf pan – 350 F for about 1 hour
