Kaufman’s Nana Bread


  • 1/2 c shortening (I now use Coconut Oil - works wonderfully)
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c pre-sifted flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1+ c mashed bananas (the rottener the better! -- and a bit more than 1 cup works as well)
  • 1 Tbsp crunchy Peanut Butter


  1. Cream shortening (coconut oil) and sugar
  2. Beat in the eggs
  3. Sift together flour and baking soda
  4. Add flour mixture to egg mixture and beat until creamy
  5. (OK -- add it slowly so you don't have a flour cloud all over the kitchen)
  6. Add bananas and peanut butter (mix in)
  7. pour into a well greased loaf pan (again, I have been using coconut oil with great results)
  8. Bake at 325ºF for about 1 hour


Very forgiving recipe -- use at least 1 cup of mashed banana, but a bit extra is really good as well. I have been known to add a touch of salt (salt-a-holic here - especially if I used all natural peanut butter with no salt added); crunch peanut butter is best, but smooth/creamy works just fine. And, since I won't touch Crisco anymore, I started using coconut oil. Even better than the original shortening. Guess you could use lard ( )
