Banana Bread recipe

I thought you all might like to know what we are having for breakfast in the morning.  Banana bread with fresh (frozen fruit) fruit.  I found that the kids really like the frozen fruit from Sams Club, it has strawberries and pineapple and mango, melons and I think grapes, it's just a little under $9 for a large bag the bag lasts for about 3 breakfasts.  We have fruit for breakfast about two times a week with yogurt or fresh muffins.  Tomorrow I am going to have Banana bread, it smells so good I thought I would share my recipe with you, you all, my cyber friends..
1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tea Baking Powder
1/2 tea Baking Soda
1/4 tea Salt
1 tlbs Vanilla 
2 Eggs (fresh from your very own back yard if you have them)
1/3 cup Shortening 
2 tlbs Milk
2 or 3 Ripe Bananas / Mashed
1 cup Pecans / Chopped

I just mix it all together and I use two loaf pans, I like thinner slices of bread, you can use one loaf pan and make a really thick loaf.  Bake at 350 for about 50-60 min.
Now the hard part is to wrap the warm wonderful smelling bread up in plastic wrap and wait until morning, but if you can, it is so moist and wonderful you will thank me!
