1 2/3 Cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons soda
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 Cup soft shortening

1 1/4 Cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
3 eggs
1/2 to 2/3 Cup nuts
Blend flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Add shortening, half of buttermilk and mashed
bananas. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed or 300 strokes by hand. Add eggs and rest of
buttermilk. Beat 2 more minutes. Fold in nuts. Bake layers about 35 minutes, oblong 45 to

bananas, if desired.
(I have used this recipe for banana cake or bread forever.
I like it because it is moist and not dry)
