If you are searching for the perfect banana bread recipe, your search is over. This is another great recipe from our friend Jeremy’s family. It was gone in 5 minutes. My boys both gobbled it up. I loved it because it was so easy to throw together and I could use up all of my over-ripe bananas!

Servings: 10 Slices


  • 1 C sugar
  • 2 Tbs shortening I used butter flavored shortening and it turned out great!
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 C milk
  • 3 C Flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 C mashed Banana About 2-3


  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.  
  • Grease a loaf pan.  1 Full size, or 2 small.
  • Mix sugar, shortening, and egg thoroughly.  Stir in milk.  Measure flour and blend dry ingredients.
  • Stir in.  Blend in mashed bananas.  You don't want to use a mixer for this.  Hand mix it and batter should be a little lumpy.  Pour into pan(s).
  •  Bake for 60-70 minutes.  Check center with toothpick and it should come out clean.


I checked mine at 50 minutes.  It needed about 55 minutes.  I would check the center every 5.

    1. This is close to a recipe that I’ve been using for over 30 years… try and use 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar

  1. This looks delicious, I love banana bread I may need to try it. Newest GFC follower. I love your blog and cannot wait to start trying out some of these recipes.

  2. That looks really, really good! I’m not a fan of banana bread, but from the looks of this one, I’m going to give it a try.
