Banana bread folks, warm from the oven at posting :)

It won't last long though, so you'd better act fast.

And of course, I found SPRING today! Check it out here. []

Banana Bread

Makes 1 loaf (I doubled it for this, and made 2)

Preheat oven to 350F.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening (I used margarine today)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 large overripe bananas, mashed
1 large egg

In a bowl, cream shortening with brown sugar. Add egg and combine, then add bananas.

To this add dry ingredients. Combine until moistened. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake for 50-60 minutes until tester removes mostly clean.

Enjoy warm with butter!

And she bakes, too. Stop! Between your luscious looking banana bread and Karman's deadly cherry pie, I'm gaining weight just looking at my monitor!
