This is another recipe from my 1955 Marshall Township PTA Cookbook. This recipe was submitted by Mrs. Della Piper.

2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup chopped nuts
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup salad oil
1 cup mashed bananas

Sift together the dry ingredients. Add 3/4 cup nuts. Combine remaining ingredients and add to dry ingredients. Stir only until the flour is moistened. Pour into a greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the top of the loaf. Bake in 350 degree oven for 1 hour.

Hi Linda,
Everyone should have a good banana gread recipe in their recipe file. Looks like Della found one! I am a bit surprised at the oil in the recipe for the era though.

Thanks for sharing, Linda...
