Best Banana Bread

All I need to say about this banana bread is that it's my mama's and it is fabulous. The banana and butter flavors really make it great!

Best Banana Bread

2 cups bread flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. banana flavor
1/2 tsp. butter flavor
2 eggs
1 cup bananas, mashed (3 large)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup shortening, melted
1 cup pecans, chopped

How to Make It:
1) Sift together the first four ingredients in a large bowl.
2) Beat the remaining ingredients (except the nuts) together in a small bowl and add to the dry ingredients.
3) Mix in 1 cup pecans.
4) Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or until toothpick comes out mostly clean).
5) Cool 5 minutes before serving warm with butter.

I made this bread last night, and it was delicious! I didn't have banana flavoring and couldn't find any at the store, so I left that out. I did add something though: chocolate chips. Everything's better with chocolate, right? ;)

If I remember correctly, this is the first time I've ever made banana bread; now that I've done it, I'm sure I'll do it every time I have bananas that are over-ripe. And this will be THE banana bread recipe for me. Thanks! :)

So glad you liked it! Yes, every other banana bread I've tried just isn't as good. And I agree, chocolate does make everything better!
