This is the perfect recipe for those over-ripe bananas! I love eating warm banana bread with melted butter spread across it!
1 cup shortening (you can substitute 1/2 of this with applesauce)
2 cups sugar
5 large bananas or more
3 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Add ingredients in the order listed above. If the bananas aren't over-ripe, you may want to mash them up before adding them. Grease pans (this usually makes about 4 loaves for me). Cook for 75-80 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
