Yes! We Have No Bananas!
Cream together 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup Crisco shortening. ( I buy the Crisco in the bars now instead of the can...and they are pre-measured into one cup bars. Just cut one bar in half for this recipe, and put the other half back in the little plastic container for the next time. So convenient and un-messy! Just my style!)
Add two eggs to the creamed sugar and shortening, and mix well. Then add three very ripe bananas and mix again.
Combine 1& 1/4 cup flour with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon baking soda. Add to above mixture and mix well.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup chopped walnuts and stir until blended in.
Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes, or until center is firm and toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for a few minutes in pan, and then remove from pan and put on cooling rack to cool completely. After cooled, it may be put into a ziploc bag or other container and refrigerated. Will keep for at least a week refrigerated, or may be frozen for later.
