I've been making this for so long, it's another family favorite.
The smells in your kitchen will bring the mailman to your door!

This recipe makes 8 loaves, so be prepared! If I'm going through the mess and time why not make up a bunch. They freeze up really good and make perfect gifts!

Enjoy!

Serves:

8 loaves

Ingredients

2 1/2 c
shortening (i use crisco)
5 c
white sugar
10 large
eggs
5 c
mashed blackened bananas
10 c
all purpose flour
5 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
baking powder
2 1/2 tsp
salt
1 2/3 c
buttermilk (or mix up 2 teaspoons lemon juice in whole milk)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven at 350 degrees

prepare 8 bread pans, grease and flour. Do not use spray. If you add nuts you may be able to squeeze out another loaf!
You can also make up a bunch of mini loaves.
2
In a large mixing bowl add your shortening and sugar, mix well.
Add your eggs, blend well.
3
Add your bananas, blend well.
4
In another mixing bowl add your flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk that to blend evenly.
5
Gradually alternate your flour mixture and buttermilk to the wet ingredients beginning and ending with the flour.
6
After everything is mixed, fill your prepared pans about 1/2 full.
7
Bake 4 loaves at a time for about 45 to 50 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
DO NOT OVER BAKE, just when the bread is baked and looks a tad wet just at the top I take them out.
8
Remove them right away from your pans. I flip them on their sides then after 5 minutes flip them on their other side.
9
I couldn't resist and cut one while it was still hot and put a little butter on it! All gone!
