A family favorite passed down for generations. Add nuts and/or candied fruit to make it to your liking. This is a perfect breakfast, a delicious snack … or heck, have it for dinner. That’s stretching it.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease the bottom of a 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 x 3 inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, beat shortening until creamy. Gradually add sugar beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until the mixture is a thick, pale lemon color. Add nuts, fruits if you choose. You don’t have to add fruits and nuts. If you do, it makes for more of a fruitcake type of cake. Set aside.
Sift dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl then add them alternately with bananas into the sugar/egg mixture. Blend after each addition.
Pour into loaf pan. Place pan in middle rack of oven. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (until toothpick comes out dry and loaf is golden brown).
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
