Cooking Thursday

I'm sharing another one of my Mom's recipes today. This one goes with my banana post from Tuesday - it's what I use my frozen bananas for! I've tried several different banana bread recipes, but I always go back to this easy recipe from my mom.

Banana Bread

Cream together:
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
Add 3 mashed bananas
Mix in:
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 cups flour
5 tablespoons milk

Pour into a greased large loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 - 1 1/4 hours, until bread tests done.

Mom's recipe is always the best, isn't it! My mom makes a sweet potato pie that my kids and I love.

Maybe I'll bake a few things this summer. Your mom's recipe sounds easy and tasty.
