This is the moistest banana bread that I have ever tasted. It’s also very easy to make!

This is a great recipe, my friends loved it and asked for the recipe. It’s really good warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream – it tastes like dessert in a fine restaurant! Once I tried it with low-fat vanilla yogurt and it’s even richer that way, though you may need to cook it longer.

To make this wonderfully delicious Banana Bread you’ll need the following ingredients:


1/2 cup shortening

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla


1 Cream shortening and add sugar gradually, mix in eggs and banana.

2 In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients together and add them to the creamed mixture.

3 Then add the milk, sour cream and vanilla& mix till combined.

4 Grease 1 bundt pan or 2 bread pans, pour in the batter and bake for 1 hour (or until done) at 350°F
