2 1/2 c Sugar
1 c Crisco
4 c Flour
1 1/2 ts Baking soda
1 ts Baking powder
1 ts Salt
1/2 c Buttermilk
6 Ripe bananas, mashed
1 ts Vanilla
1 c Broken walnuts
Cream crisco and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat until fluffy.
Mix salt, soda and baking powder with flour. Mash bananas and add
buttermilk and vanilla.
Mix dry ingredients alternately with wet ingredients into
sugar/egg/crisco mixture. Add walnuts.
Grease and flour three foil loaf pans and divide batter into them.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. After it has cooled to touch, put
each loaf in a 1 gallon zip lock bag. This will soften the crust.
Don’t zip the bag until the bread is cool.
* I put my walnuts in a gallon bag and roll them with a rolling pin.
