Country banana bread recipe

Also known as Chiquita country loaf

Ingredients

1/3 cup of shortening
2/3 cup of sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1-3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
2-3/4 teaspoon of double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of mashed, ripe Chiquita bananas (2-3 bananas)

Directions

Beat shortening until creamy (or 1 minute on medium speed in an electric mixer). Blend in sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beat well. Sift dry ingredients; add alternately with bananas; blend well after each addition.

Grease the bottom of a 4-1/2 x 8-1/2 x 3-inch loaf pan. Turn the batter into the pan. Bake in a 350 F oven for 60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn onto a rack. Makes 1 loaf.

Create a fruit cake by adding a 1/2 cup each of chopped nuts and mixed candied fruit and peels.
