Banana Tea Bread

Banana Tea Bread, as the name suggests, is a wonderful accompaniment to a hot cup of tea, but can be enjoyed just as thoroughly by itself. This bread is flavorful and moist with a very light crust and, to be honest, it can be quite addicting.*

* For instance, as you can see here, the anticipation of eating the banana bread was so much that there was no time for any attempt at staging this picture. A paper plate would just have to do.

Banana Tea Bread

1 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
3 mashed bananas (approximately 1 cup)

Preheat oven to 300° F. Combine in the order listed, mixing well after each addition. Turn into greased 9X5x3 loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until done. Makes 1 loaf.
