Banana Bread

This recipe was given to me by my great aunt Mary. She is an excellent cook! Everything that she makes is so delicious! I have never been disappointed with any of the recipes that I have made of hers in our families cookbook. This recipe is so delicious!

What you need:

1/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 large bananas
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream shortening and sugar until it is mixed well. Add well beaten egg. Mash bananas well and then add to the mixture. In a seperate bowl sift dry ingredients together and then add to everything else. You can add chopped pecans or walnuts to this mix as well. Grease an 8 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch pan. Pour into pan and bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pan for about 5 minutes and then take bread out and let cool on a cooling rack.
