I think this was my Mom's recipe (??)... I like it the best of all the Banana Bread recipes I've tried because the ingredients dont include things you might not buy on a regular basis (buttermilk and the like...) and it turns out just about every time even if you vary the ingredients a little (such as using whole wheat flour instead of white flour, or adding wheat germ, or using low fat margarine instead of butter).
1 3/4 c. Flour
2/3 c. Sugar
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. mashed banana (2-3-ish as ripe as they come)
1/3 c. melted shortening or margarine or butter
2 tbsp milk
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cups nuts to sprinkle on top (optional... I use chocolate chips instead sometimes, shhhhh!)
Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt. Set aside.
Melt butter in microwave safe bowl. Mix in sugar, banana, milk, eggs. Once combined, add in dry ingredients.
Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes.
Makes 1 loaf.
