Jessica's Banana Bread

This recipe comes to you courtesy of Jessica Haslam, via Sarah McKenna.  It is her mom's banana bread recipe, and it is Y.U.M.M.Y.  I can't wait to have it again!

Jessica's Banana Bread
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
2 eggs
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
3/4 cup Buttermilk (Jess usually just adds lemon juice to regular milk.)
3-4 smashed "bad" bananas
1/2 cup walnuts (opitonal)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs, salt, soda, bananas, flour and buttermilk.  Mix until smooth.  Add nuts if desired.  Grease and flour (baking PAM) two bread pans.  Bake two loaves at 350 degrees for 45 minutes - 1 hour.  Let cool and turn out of pan.
