Chrissy's Own Banana Bread Recipe


1/2 c shortening
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp baking soda

1 Teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups flour
2 pinches of salt
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 tablespoons best foods mayo
3 tablespoons applesauce
1/8 cup pineapple juice
4 soft ripe bananas
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I use walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts)

1 teaspoon cloves optional 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In large bowl add flour,

In another bowl start with an electric mixer, mixing sour cream, shortening, sugar, eggs, and baking soda. Once everything is smooth l, slowly mix in flour and spices, then mix in the bananas, raisins and nuts mix until incorporated. Pour into greased loaf pan 2/3 of the way from top and bake 45 min. Toothpick or butter knife should come out clean.

While baking use 3 teaspoons of Nutella or chocolate hazelnut spread in a glass measuring cup heat in microwave for 25 seconds add 1/4 cup cream, 3 teaspoons powder sugar. Whisk smooth and drizzle over top. 

I like to cut mine in half and spread the hazelnut chocolate spread in center too. Just make sure you let it cool first! Hope you all enjoy!!! Let me know what you think when you try it!
