Aunt Beryle's Banana Raisin Bread

Comment on this recipe

1 cup applesauce works great in place of shortening. Salt may be omitted entirely, found no taste difference when omitted.

Ingredients

1 cup shortening
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 eggs
8 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup raisins
4 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Cream shortening and sugar together in large mixing bowl. Add eggs to mixture, mix well. Stir in mashed bananas and raisins. Add flour, soda and salt and mix well. Spray two 8x4-inch pans with cooking spray. Pour prepared batter evenly between the loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes on lower oven rack. Test with toothpick or wooden skewer for doneness. Every oven is different; keep eye on loaves after 30 minutes because of the moistness of bananas, cooking time can vary. Let your wooden tester be your guide.
