When you are staying at The Royal Hawaiian, they give you banana bread in your room every three days or so. This time they left the recipe on a card, here it is.

Yield: 1 loaf

Royal Hawaiian Banana Bread


4-5 mashed ripe bananas (about 1 1/2 cups)

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1/2 cup shortening or vegetable oil

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

cinnamon to taste

1/2 cup Macadamia nuts as an option. You can use any nuts.



Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease your 2" x 4" X 8" size loaf pan. Take a large bowl and add sugar, shortening (or oil), and eggs. Mix for a while. Add mashed bananas and mix some more. Add all the dry ingredients into the bowl - flour, salt, vanilla, baking powder and baking soda and mix. You will have a very thick batter. As an option, mix in the nuts of your choice. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for approximately one hour. Stick a toothpick in your banana bread to see if it comes out clean. Leave it for a few minutes to cool.

If you would like this banana bread recipe even moister, add more bananas.
