Tasty Tuesday Orange Banana Bread!
On New Year's Day, I felt like baking something and I had a nice, big naval orange and three aging bananas. This is what I did with them. . .
Cheryl's Orange Banana Bread
3 very ripe bananas
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
the zest (about 1 Tbsp) and juice of one large orange
1/3 cup shortening
Cream the shortening together with the eggs, bananas, and sugar. Add the orange juice and zest and then beat in remaining ingredients. Bake in a large (9 X 5) greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for about one hour and enjoy!
