Description

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.

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cups Shortening
  • ⅔ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 whole Eggs, Slightly Beaten
  • ½ cups Coarsely Chopped Nuts {Optional. I Used Walnuts.}
  • ½ cups Candied Cherries {Optional.}
  • ½ cups Mixed Candied Fruits {Optional.}
  • ¼ cups Seedless Raisins {Optional.}
  • 1-¾ cup Sifted All-Purpose Flour
  • 2-¾ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup Mashed Bananas (for 1 Cup You'll Need About 3)

Preparation

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).
