Frugal Eats: Banana Nut Bread

I made this recipe for my classmates on the last day of class and it was gone in about two minutes. I don't even think everyone got some. It was delicious, super easy, and only cost $2.55.

Banana Nut Bread

  • 1 cup sugar (19 cents)
  • 1/2 cup shortening (27 cents)
  • 2 eggs (32 cents)
  • 2 cups flour (19 cents)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (81 cents)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda (less than a penny)
  • 3 soft, ripe bananas, mashed (96 cents)

Cream sugar and shortening; add eggs, flour, soda, bananas, and chopped nuts. Pour banana bread batter into 1 greased and floured loaf pan. I took some extra sugar and nuts and sprinkled them on top before putting it in the oven. Bake at 325° for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This banana nut bread recipe makes 1 loaf.

OOOH... I'm so trying this recipe. I'll use hazelnuts though, since I got a fantastic deal on them at Publix *grin*. Thanks for posting this. It looks yummy.
