Banana Spice Bread

My family loves banana bread and I've tried several recipes, some with nuts and some without. I never waste over ripe bananas. When they get too ripe to eat I put them in a bag and throw them in the freezer. Then when we crave banana bread I'm prepared.

This recipe is from Watkins Incorporated and uses several gourmet ingredients.

Banana Spice Bread

1/3 cup/80 mL vegetable shortening
1/2 cup/125 mL sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Original Double-Strength Vanilla
3/4 tsp/4 mL Watkins Banana Extract

1 tsp/5 mL Watkins Baking Powder
1-1/2 tsp/7.5 mL Watkins Ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp/2.5 mL Watkins Sea Salt
1/4 tsp/1.2 Watkins Ground Nutmeg
1 cup/250 mL mashed ripe banana
1/2 cup/125 mL chopped walnuts
