Banana-nut bread

This recipe is from my friend Ayalla. It makes a heavy, but moist, loaf of banana bread.


(1 loaf)


  1. Preheat the oven to Cream the shortening and sugar.
  2. Mix in the bananas.
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Pour into a greased loaf pan.
  5. Bake 1 hour 15-20 minutes at


If you use more than 3 normal-size bananas, I suggest that you lower the oven temperature and cook for a while longer. Otherwise, the crust comes out almost overcooked while the middle remains moist and almost undercooked.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: Preparation: 10 minutes; baking: at least 95 minutes. Allow some time for cooling.
Precision: Approximate measurement OK.
