Banana Nut Breakfast Bread

(8 servings)

  • 3 medium mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup nuts - finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and nuts.

In a separate bowl, cream together (I use my fingers) the sugar and shortening. Beat the eggs into this mixture one at a time.

Add sugar mixture to the dry ingredients. Mix in all remaining ingredients.

Bake at 350 for 50 minutes -- watching carefully after 45 minutes. Insert a toothpick into the middle of the loaf. It it comes out free of batter, the bread is done.

Makes 1 loaf of deliciousness! Use any kind of nut you prefer in this bread. I've used walnuts and pecans so far. I'd recommend pecans the most.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank stuartlittle76 for this recipe.
