Banana Nut Bread

by Bertie Shannon (Autumn’s Mama)


about 2 dozen muffins or 2 loaves


3 or 4 Bananas (depending on size)

1/2 cup Shortening

2 Eggs

1 1/2 tsp Salt

1 tsp Cinnamon (optional)

1/2 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

10 Tbsp Buttermilk (about 2/3 cup)

1 tsp Baking Soda

2 cups Sugar

3 cups Flour


– Mash bananas. Add milk and soda. (Tip: If you don’t have butter milk, you can make it by adding a small amount of vinegar to regular milk. I usually have 2% milk, so for this recipe I use a little less than 2/3 cup of milk and approximately 1 tsp of vinegar.)

– Add remaining ingredients (except the nuts) and mix well. Add nuts last. (Nuts and cinnamon are optional depending on your taste.)

– Scoop batter into ungreased baking dishes, around 2/3 full for both muffin cups and loaf pans.

– Bake at 350 degrees. For muffins, bake for 20 minutes. For loaves, bake 1 hour. Test by sticking a toothpick in the center. They are done when the toothpick comes out clean and they are golden brown.
