New Recipe: Banana Nut Bread

       I've been exploring a lot of new dinner recipes lately but baking has always been my specialty. So I thought for today's post I would share my families banana nut bread recipe. It's super easy to make and perfect for when you're assigned to bring breakfast to the office or are hosting a brunch at your house.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Crisco shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
***The key to the perfect banana bread is super old banana's. I know it sounds gross but when the peal is brown and the banana is soooo mushy it adds extra flavor and makes the bread taste better. Trust me on this one*
Make banana bread when your banana's go bad

Directions:
  • Preheat over to 350 degrees
  • Combine shortening and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and add to sugar mixture.
  • Add remaining ingredients, mix well.
  • Pour into a well-greased loaf pan.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes
  • Eat and enjoy!
                                      
I forgot to take an "out of the oven photo" and everybody ate it before I remembered.... whoops! It came out perfect!
