~Apple Banana Cinnamon Bread~

Apple Banana Cinnamon Bread

1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 bananas, mashed
1 medium apple, grated or diced small
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2cup brown sugar
3/4 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Blend shortening, eggs, sugars and fruit together. Mix salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour together; add to fruit mixture. Bake 45 min. in greased and floured loaf pan at 350 deg.
*For Topping: Combine brown sugar, nuts, butter and cinnamon together in saucepan. Cook until sugar dissolves. Spread on top of bread and continue to bake 10 to 15 minutes longer. After the first 45 min., and you add the topping and continue to bake, check with a toothpick. It may take a few minutes longer or less. This bread freezes very well.
***I altered this a bit in how I baked it...I put it in a 9x13 pan and it cooked a little quicker so I added the topping sooner as well. It is really yummy and was a good twist to the regular banana bread.
