Grandmother’s Banana Bread


  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup shortening, plus more for the pan
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 ripe bananas, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tbsp cold water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9” loaf pan. Using an electric mixer, cream together shortening and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add the bananas a little at a time, and beat them thoroughly into the batter. In a separate small bowl, mix the baking soda and water. Add a third of the flour to the batter and beat until blended in. Stir the baking soda mixture well and add half to the batter. Add half the remaining flour, followed by the other half of the baking soda, and finish with the last of the flour, blending the batter between each new addition. Pour the batter into the greased pan and bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

NOTE: This banana bread is also great with chocolate chips added!
