Moms Banana Bread

This recipe is one that I grew up with.  I always loved my moms Banana Bread.  So good that it never lasted long with all of us kids. Trust me, It never disappoints. This batch I made plain.  We rotate plain and goodies.  So then everyone gets their "favorite" of the recipe. 

Moms Banana Bread
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup flour ~ sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup walnuts ~ optional
1/2 cup chocolate chips ~ optional

Cream shortening and sugar together.  Add in eggs and beat till well mixed.  Sift dry ingredients into cream mixture, Alternating dry ingredients and mashed bananas.  Put into well greased bread pans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Let cool in pans for 2 minutes and then flips pan over on cooling rack and let bread fall on its own.
