Growing up Mema used to always make us banana bread and I loved going to her house to eat it. Well I think it’s about time I learned how to make such an easy recipe!
When I got to her house, she had all of the ingredients out and ready, such an all-star grandmother.
Mema told me, This is your most marketable thing yet, just wait till the guys taste this!”
Here is our age old recipe:
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1 egg
- 3 large bananas
- 2 cups of flour sifted
- 1 level tsp soda
- 1/2 cup nuts (we used walnuts)
- Bake at 275 for an hour to an hour and a half
Mema got this cookbook in the early 50’s. Lots of love in this book. She always says “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”
