- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease 2 – 9×5 inch loaf pans. In a medium bowl, mash bananas and stir in the eggs until well blended. Set aside.
- In large bowl, beat shortening and gradually add sugar. Stir in vanilla and banana mixture. Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt; blend into batter. Add walnuts if desired. Divide between the prepared pans.
- Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
