Banana Nut Bread

Later on this week, I will begin baking for the Farmer's Market. I think I will make a couple of loaves of this bread along with some cookies, by request!

Today however, is my mother's birthday!
I love my Moma and I can't imagine anyone having a better mother than I have. It's true. She's amazing.
She is such a great supporter of me and my family and the life we have chosen to live. She is always my biggest encourager whenever I get down and out. She loves and loves and loves...
I am so thankful that she is a big part of our lives.

With that said, I am making my Moma some of this banana nut bread for her birthday!

Here's the recipe

1/2 cup lard or butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour (I plan on using 1/2 white and 1/2 wheat)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs beaten
3 bananas mashed
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup walnuts or pecans chopped

Preheat oven to 350*
Cream fat and sugar
Sift together dry ingredients and add to cream mixture
Add remaining ingredients and mix well
Pour into well greased loaf pan
Bake 40 minutes or until set.

The glaze is just a simple powder sugar and milk glaze with extra nuts sprinkled on top.

I hope you enjoy!
