Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Banana Nut Bread - Aunt Alda May

I have always liked banana bread and Aunt Alda May is partially responsible.  Her recipe is below.  The nutrition information is for 16 servings.  You can substitute some of the flour with whole wheat flour, if you choose. 

  1 Cup Sugar                                                                           2 Cups Flour
  1/2 Cup Shortening                                                                  1/4 Tsp Salt
  2 Large Eggs                                                                          1 Tsp Baking Soda
  3 Medium Bananas                                                                  1/2 Cup Nuts

Sift flour, salt and soda together, set aside.  Mash bananas and set aside - you should have about 3 cups.  Cream together sugar and shortening, add beaten eggs.   Add bananas to sugar then add all other ingredients.  Add chopped nuts.  Divide between 2 – 8  inch bread pans.  Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes.
