Bonanzas 4 Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of those baked goods that should be a staple of appreciation for everyone.

How one could pass on warm banana bread straight from the oven with a pat of butter, I will never, ever, be able to understand.

This is my family's banana bread recipe and it's extremely well loved and received. I am sure you have your own family recipe but, I encourage you to give this one a try because it's subtle taste of banana and nice cake like consistency is rivaled by few breads I've had in the past.

Plus. Easy breezy for a bread recipe.

Banana Bread
-2/3 cup sugar
-1/3 cup soft shortening
-2 eggs
Stir In:
-3 tablespoons soured milk (milk with lemon juice)
-1 cup mashed bananas
-2 cups flour
