Ayalla's banana bread

Yield: 1 loaf

Measure Ingredient
3 Bananas, very ripe
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Shortening (butter)
2 Eggs
3 tablespoons Yoghurt or sour cream
2 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 cup Walnuts, chopped
Rum, vanilla, or amaretto (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the shortening and sugar.

Mix in the bananas. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake 1 hour 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees F.

NOTES:

* This recipe is from my friend Ayalla -- It makes a heavy, but moist, loaf of banana bread.

* If you use more than 3 normal-size bananas, I suggest that you lower the oven temperature and cook for a while longer. Otherwise, the crust comes out almost overcooked while the middle remains moist and almost undercooked.

: Difficulty: easy.

: Time: Preparation: 10 minutes; baking: at least 95 minutes.

Allow some time for cooling.

: Precision: Approximate measurement OK.
