Banana Bread

This might possibly be the best banana bread recipe out there! Not dry, but not overly mushy either. Once, Grandma got a really good deal on bananas and came home with around 20 pounds of ripe bananas. She set to work making banana bread, and when she was done she had enough to give a mini loaf to every one of her great-grandchildren!

Banana Bread
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. melted shortening
3 ripe bananas-mashed
2 c. flour- fluff with a fork before measuring
pinch of salt
2 eggs- well beaten
1/2 c. chopped nuts-Syd is allergic to nuts so we use big milk-chocolate chips

Mix ingredients together in order given. Do no over-beat. Put waxed paper in the bottom of loaf pan and lightly grease. You will never have trouble getting it out. Bake 1 hour in medium loaf tin at 350.

A Book for Grandma

I wanted a place where I could share Grandma's recipes and other things she loved. She was such a great lady. She was my teacher in the kitchen for many years. She taught me to do things right: measure correctly, set a pretty table, use your good dishes on family, write thing down, and feed those that you love. I love you Grandma!
