The most awesome banana bread recipe in the world

Consider yourselves lucky.  Today I am sharing my Mamaw Daisy's top secret recipe for banana bread.  It is hands down the very best banana bread I've ever eaten (and I've eaten a lot of banana bread!)  If you're good, next week I'll share her top secret pumpkin bread recipe- just in time for fall festivals!

Insanely Delicious!

Banana Bread (aka:  Daisy's Bomb Diggity Banana Awesomeness) 
2/3 cup shortening (I use Crisco)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups mashed bananas
2/3 cup water
3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2/3 cups nuts (optional)

Directions: Cream shortening, sugar. Beat in eggs, bananas, and water.

Sift together flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, and cloves. Add to banana mixture. Stir in nuts (optional). Put in greased and floured pans. It will make 8 small loaves or 2 large loaves. Bake at 350 until done. Test with a tooth pick. I bake mine for 35 minutes when I use the small loaf pans . Around 50 minutes for large pans.  Let it cool and enjoy!
