Instructions for moist Old-Fashioned Chiquita Banana Nut Loaf Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a loaf pan, spray with non stick cooking spray or line with non-stick foil. In a large mixing bowl combine sugar, shortening and eggs; beat well. Add bananas and beat well. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add sifted ingredients to the banana mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour. Banana bread is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool before slicing.

Serving Suggestions:
Top with Versatile Chiquita Banana Bread Glaze: in a small bowl blend 1 cup confectioner's sugar, 2 Tbsp. milk, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, then spread mixture evenly over warm loaf.

To create daintier slices, cut loaf lengthwise down the middle before slicing widthwise.

Beverage Pairings:
Great with hot tea or milk.
