I have probably tasted dozens of recipes for banana bread—some are delicious, and some are, well, not so delicious. Some contain nuts, some don't. There are countless recipes for banana bread, and it is up to you to find the one that is your own favorite. You might already have a favorite banana bread recipe, or you might still be looking. Either way, you should try out this delicious recipe. This banana bread will take you back to mornings in your grandma's kitchen and evenings by the fire on cold December nights. Try it and you may find that you end up with a new favorite banana bread recipe!
You will need the following ingredients:
Start out making your banana bread by mixing all the dry ingredients together. Make sure that the ingredients are mixed well and completely. Add the shortening and the eggs and mix with a hand mixer to cream the ingredients together. Add the mashed bananas. You want everything to be evenly distributed, so make sure that you take the time to sufficiently mix the bananas in with the rest of the mixture. Now add the vanilla and the buttermilk. Again, make sure that you mix it well.
Once you have the banana bread mixed up, put it in a loaf pan. Bake the bread in an oven preheated to 350 degrees. If you're baking a big loaf, then it needs to bake for one hour. If you're baking smaller loaves, then bake the bread for around forty minutes. The best way, however, to tell if you're baking the bread long enough is to simply keep checking. When the bread is slightly brown, it should be done.
The next step for you is to simply slice a piece of bread and see if you like it! It never hurts to try another recipe—this one could be your ultimate favorite!
