1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
1 cup mashed banana (2-3 bananas)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour, measure and add baking powder, soda, and salt. Sift again.
Cream Shortening. Add sugar. Gradually continue beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix until smooth.
Add dry ingredients alternatively with the mashed banana, stirring fast enough to combine thoroughly. Do not beat.
Turn into a greased loaf pan (9 1/2 x 5 1/2) or angel cake pan. Bake for about 1 hour. Stick a fork in the bread, and once the fork comes out clean, the bread is done. The top of the loaf will be nice and golden brown.
