How to Make Mom's Banana Nut Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 2In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • 3In a mixer bowl beat sugar and shortening with an electric mixer until light, scraping sides of the bowl often. Add eggs, one at a time, and the milk, beating until smooth after each addition.
