Banana Bread

From Cyndi:  This is the recipe I made last night. I've used it for years and I do like it.

Banana Bread

1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup bananas, mashed
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
---------------------
DOUBLE BATCH
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
1 1/3 cup sugar
4 eggs
2 cups bananas, mashed
1 cup walnuts, chopped
---------------------
TRIPLE BATCH
5 1/4 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking soda
3 3/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
6 eggs
3 cups bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped

Mix all together thoroughly. Pour into greased loaf pans (recipe makes one large loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans). Bake at 350°, 50 to 60 minutes for large loaf pan, 40 to 45 minutes for mini loaf pans. Check to see if a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool on rack, remove from pans and wrap well with plastic wrap.

Author Notes: A triple batch makes 8 mini loaves.
