This is a really good banana bread that I have been making for over 35 yrs. It has such good flavor and is so moist.
I enjoy this hot or cold topped with butter.
Sometimes I will double the batch and toss a couple of them in the freezer.
Let your banana's ripen until the skins are black , this will give you a really good banana flavor.
Grease 2 loaf pans or spray with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
Beat your peeled bananas until all creamy.
Whip the eggs with a fork and add the whipped eggs to the bananas.
Mix well and set aside.
In a separate bowl beat the shortening until it's creamy.
Gradually add the sugar and Beat until fluffy.
Add the banana mixture.
Mix until the banana mixture is combined.
In a 4 cup measuring cup or a separate bowl, Combine the flour , soda and the salt together and mix with a fork so all the soda and salt are mixed in with the flour.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the banana mixture , mixing up well before adding more flour.
Mix until it's all combined together ; add your walnuts if using.
Pour the batter evenly into the prepared bread pans.
Bake @ 300° for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours until firm to the touch or until a cake tester or a tooth pick put inserted in the center comes out clean. Let them sit in the pans for 3-5 minutes before removing.
Place on a wire rack and let cool...enjoy
