I have been making the same banana bread recipe of my Grandmothers for some time. I have tried a few alterations since and still love the recipe. This time I opted to use mango and banana and coconut rum...I know, right? Just be sure that your fruit is VERY ripe, where you are thinking of throwing it out because no one would eat that...that kind of ripe. (And no, this is not really one of the lower calorie recipes, but a treat we have once in a while and the remainder goes with me to work for everyone else to eat.)
Mango Banana Bread
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup soft shortening
3 Tbsp buttermilk
1 cup mashed fruit (banana and mango)
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1. Mix together thoroughly the sugar, shortening and eggs.
2. Stir in the buttermilk and fruit.
3. Sift together the dry ingredients- flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt- and add to wet ingredients.
4. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
