Foodie Friday- Banana Bread

Banana Bread
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 3 medium bananas) 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, beat the shortening for 2 minutes until creamy. Gradually add the sugar, beating until light and fluffy after each addition. Add the eggs and vanilla; beat until thick and pale lemon in colour. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt, slowly begin adding the flour mixture to the sugar mixture, alternating with the mashed bananas and combine well after each addition.
  2. Grease only the bottom of a 41/2 x 8 1/2 inch loaf pan or bread pan. Transfer the batter to the pan and bake for 50-60 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
