My Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

This recipe for banana bread is an old one (those are the best kinds) that I have altered somewhat over the years I have been making it. It contains a secret ingredient that will create a moist and tasty banana bread--the secret is sour cream ! First, I will post the original recipe, which comes from an old church cookbook I have.  Incidentally, this is not the first recipe I've posted from this cookbook.  You can also check out my post on Refrigerator Pickles for another great recipe from this cookbook. Banana Bread (Original Recipe) 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup shortening 1 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 1 cup mashed bananas 1 cup sour cream 1 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups flour Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and salt. Beat again. Add bananas. Add baking soda to sour cream. Add to above mixture along with flour. Grease 2 medium loaf pans or a 9x13-inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees until it loosens from side of pan and tests done. -Myrtle Kuehling Now, the original recipe
