This recipe does NOT contain eggs or milk.
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening for about 5 minutes (mixture does not get smooth). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with bananas, beating after each addition (the batter will be thick). Spoon into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until bread tests done with a toothpick. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
It can be put on the breadmaker. Cut the banana lengthwise and put on the bottom, then add everything else. While mixing, scrape the sides so everything is well mixed.
I used Sunflower oil for the shortening and it was fine. And I used 3 small bananas.
