Best Banana Bread


This recipe comes from my Aunt Lisa, and is the only banana bread my mom ever made when I was growing up. I have tried other banana bread recipes, but none of them ever turn out as well as this one - they aren't moist enough, or don't have enough banana flavor, or don't get the gooey delicious top... the name of this recipe says it all.

What you will need

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup shortening

2 eggs

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 medium overripe bananas (can be frozen, but thaw them first!)

2 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt & pepper to taste

1 teaspoon vanilla
