The cast of characters for this performance: banana, sugar, shortening, eggs, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Get started by creaming the shortening in sugar together until it is fluffy.
Next add the eggs and beat until well mixed. Add the banana and mix well. In a separate bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together and gradually added to the mixer. Finally add walnuts to complete the batter.
I love baking these in my mini loaf pan to facilitate portion control, and use a scoop to maintain even sizes for baking.
Bake at 375 degrees for exactly 30 minutes.
The loaves come out perfect every time. Delicious.
