Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Sweet Saturday - on Sunday (oops!)

Sorry, I was away all day so I didn't get this done on Saturday. I don't know if this is exactly a "sweet" but we like it, my kids practically inhale it and I just sent a loaf back to college with one of my boys. This is the easy version that you can find on the back of a box of "Jiffy" baking mix. Enjoy!

1 Loaf

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 cups JIFFY Baking Mix
1 cup very ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup chopped nuts

preheat oven to 350

Grease 9"x5" loaf pan. Cream sugar and shortening.
Add remaining ingredients. Stir until well mixed.
Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake 55 minutes.
Cool slightly before removing from pan. Get a slice
before your kids eat it all!


  1. Now that sounds like my kind of recipe- easy! and delicious.

  2. You bet it's a sweet! And exactly the sort of thing I love most: easy, delicious treats you can give away.

    Hmm...I guess I could have said, "What Kaye said."

  3. OOOOH I love Banana Nut Bread! I'll take a late recipe any day. So glad I found it! Thank you for enterring my contest!

    Have a great week!
