This is a page from my cookbook. I don’t really make chili this way anymore, but it’s a long recipe. Go to my brand new blog, to see it.

Aunt Edith’s Banana Bread
Stays moist a week

1/2 cup shortening or butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour (no more)
1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Mash in bananas. Combine flour, baking soda and salt (cut back or eliminate salt if using salted butter instead of shortening) and mix into wet ingredients. Stir in walnuts. Bake in a well-greased loaf pan at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 60-70 minutes or until top is very brown and any cracks in the top are fairly dry inside.

The original recipe had you prepare the loaf pan by greasing it, lining it with waxed paper and greasing the waxed paper. Then when the loaf was done, you removed it from the pan and peeled off the paper. At some point I just stopped doing that and began to grease the pan directly and the results have been fine. I don’t really know why that seemed like a necessary step back in the day, but I merely mention it as a curiosity.
