  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease 2 - 9x5 inch loaf pans. In a medium bowl, mash bananas and stir in the eggs until well blended. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, beat shortening and gradually add sugar. Stir in vanilla and banana mixture. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into batter. Add walnuts if desired. Divide between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I thought I would try a different Banana Bread from the one that I usually bake. I choose this one because of so many positive reviews. I was very disappointed the bread was just o.k. for me....

If I could give this recipe six stars I would!! Very moist and tasty. I did cut back on sugar by a half cup. My old recipe was dry, This one is definitely a keeper.

Well, with all the high ratings, you know this is a keeper. The bread was so rich and moist! I didn't have 5 ripe bananas-only 4. I also didn't add nuts. It's awesome!

I found this recipe very tasty. My husband completely LOVED it & was annoyed when I tried a different recipe later.
