Banana Bread Recipe

For those of you looking, here's the recipe again! And I have modified it from the previous version due to some playing around with ingredients over here. My family (And the choir) say this is definately the Bonnie's Best Bodacious Banana Bread!

Cream together:
1 1/3 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups sugar

4 eggs
6 over-ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla (or a bit more)
1/2 cup milk

When well blended add:
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (have also used pecans...mmmmm)

Spray 2 loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter into pans and bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Bread is done with knife inserted into center comes out clean and not gooey. Test not to under bake, or over bake.....

Bread is best after being stored in the fridge for a day or two....Enjoy!
