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. Preheat oven to 350ºF
  2. Beat sugar and oil
  3. Add eggs and continue to beat
  4. Add dry ingredients alternating with bananas and peanut butter
  5. Pour into a loaf pan
  6. Bake for approximately 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); crunchy 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 ( )
