3 Loaves Banana Bread Recipe


This recipe that someone in my family taught me to make is great for using up those over ripe bananas that know one will eat.  

I put the black skinned over ripe bananas in the freezer and when I have 9 of them  

I make them into Banana Bread that is tasty and moist and gets eaten before you know it.  

Very simple to make , here is how it goes.  

In a mixing bowl add 1 1/2 cups of Crisco Shortening to 2 1/4 cups of sugar and mix well  

Take 9 bananas out of the freezer (or can use unfrozen which will not take as long to bake
Peel of the skins and put the whole bananas into a separate mixing bowl
using a potato masher, mash up the bananas and add them to the mixed sugar and shortening.
Add 3 eggs and 3/4 cup of milk and again using a mixer, Mix well.  

In yet again another mixing bowl combine 5 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour with 4 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
along with 3 tsp Baking Soda and 1 1/2 tsp of salt, mix well and add to the banana mixture  

using a ladle pour into 3 Loaf pans greased, sprayed with Pam or lined with parchment paper  

As an option you can add chocolate Chips to the mixture for an added treat  

(In todays batch I poured mix into two of the pans and added chocolate chips to what was left in mixing bowl and mixed for a few seconds and filled the third pan , so only one of the loaves had chocolate chips)  

Into a pre-heated 350 degree oven they go cooking for anywhere from 45-60  minutes  

Use a tooth pick after 40 minutes to check if they are done,  

you do not want any wetness staying on the tooth pick when you pull it out  

Take them out of the pans  and put on to cooling racks.  


Full loaf of plain and one slice of the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread..... Yum!
