Yield: 1 loaf
|3||Bananas, very ripe|
|½ cup||Shortening (butter)|
|3 tablespoons||Yoghurt or sour cream|
|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.
* 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.
