Ready for the best banana bread you've ever had? This recipe originally comes from my Mama, but I added a few of my favorite ingredients to make it extra special. Cinnamon, pecans, and vanilla. How can you go wrong?
Hope you enjoy it! Your kitchen will smell amazing!
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup Crisco shortening
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together shortening and sugar, slowly add 2 eggs, the milk and the vanilla.
 Dry Ingredients:
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon (depending on how much you like)
Mix all together, and stir in 2 medium sized bananas, MASHED.
Stir just until incorporated.
Chop 1 cup pecans OR walnuts, and stir in 3/4 cup into the batter.
Add the batter to a greased pan, and sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of nuts on top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour, or until toothpick test comes clean.
Let the bread cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

 This bread is delicious as a breakfast, dessert, or makes for a wonderful gift to share with someone!
