Unsure where I got this from… appears to be online.


2 cups white sugar
1 cup shortening This was great since I had it in the 5th wheel!
4 beaten eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
½ cup chopped pecans or walnuts
6 very ripe, large bananas
Optional: add chopped dated (8), raisins or canned pineapple.


Cream together sugar and shortening. Add eggs. Add dry ingredients to first mixture. I’ve found that if you alternate adding dry ingredients and bananas, it is much easier to mix! Add mashed bananas and nuts. Bake in 4 loaf pans at 275° for 30 minutes, then increase heat to 300° and bake 45 more minutes.

Tara’s Notes:
  • 10/31/09 ~ One (1) batch filled 1 reg & 4 small, non-stick rounded pans perfectly! Gave four (4) to BBB (Brittany, Brook & Bryson) and Bobbi Jo. 1 large for Branden’s 28th Birthday.
  • 11/11/09 ~ Veterans’ Day! 54+ Bananas! Wednesday Tiff & Tara off. Brittany and Bryson finally came over around 11:00ish! Had been up since 5:30 a.m. Used ALL the frozen bananas. Made eight (8) batches. Four (4) with Nuts and four (4) without.
  • 11/13/10 ~ Brittany has a table at the Kennewick Valley Grange’s Fall Bazaar. I have the 5th Wheel in the lot and am watching Bryson. He gets to his knees like he’s going to stand up. Still doing the military crawl mixed with some regular crawling! Made four (4) batches. No nuts.
