Banana Bread

This is one of my favorite recipes handed down to me from my Gram. I make this bread in large batches and freeze them although I don't know why - they never last that long :)

Banana Bread

Cream Together:
1 C Shortening
2 C sugar

4 eggs beaten
2 1/2 C mashed bananas (give or take, I'm pretty liberal with this)

Combine and slowly add to the above mixture:
4 C flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda

*Nathan prefers his to have chocolate chips in, this is where you would gently fold in some additions if you wanted.

Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 60 minutes or until cake-tester comes out clean.  Take out of pan and set on cooling racks to cool.
