94~ Easy Banana Bread recipe...

Funny thing happens when the weather gets a bit chilly, Betty Crocker explodes into our kitchen!
I have been cranking out banana bread the past few days,and cannot seem to make enough to have an extra loaf to freeze! The whole family Loved it!

~Of all sources, the following recipe comes from a cookbook copywrited in 1978!
The Taming of the C.A.N.D.Y. Monster, by Vicki Lansky....((C-ontinuously A-dvertised
N-utritionally D-eficient Y-ummies))
***A lot of the information/tips in this cookbook are "no-brainers", but even such, I hold onto it!

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg -beaten
1 cup bran cereal or uncooked oatmeal
4-5 mashed ripe bananas (1 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour (white/whole wheat, or combination)
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped nuts (i omitted these, so far no bread police have shown up!)

Get to work....
Cream shortening and sugar until light. Add egg and mix. Add cereal, bananas and vanilla. Stir. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and add to the first mixture, stirring only long enough to moisten the flour. Bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for an hour* or until bread tests done. Stand back, family will attack!

*an hour was not even close to the correct time for me on this, I used a loaf pan and it took an hour and a half-I had better results dividing the mixture in half using 2 loaf pans, thus cutting bake time in half...
