Banana Cream Bread

I love fresh fruit in the summer, but those bananas never seem to last very long.  So....what's a girl to do except make banana bread!!  Tara called the other day for a good banana bread recipe and after searching for it forever, I finally decided just to post it so I'd always know where it was~!


2 T shortening
1 1/3 c oil
4 large eggs
1 c sour cream
3 1/4 c sugar
6 ripe bananas, mashed
1 T vanilla
4 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp soda
2 c chopped nuts (optional)

Mix first 7 ingredients.  Then add flour, salt, and soda.  Mix well.  Pour into two large prepared loaf pans.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, almonds, or coconut just before baking for an extra flare.
Bake @ 325 for 40 - 60 minutes.  Test with toothpick.  Mine always takes at least an hour.
