1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Stir in the mayonnaise and bananas. Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend the flour mixture into the banana mixture; stir just enough to evenly combine. ALTERNATE: fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.
