Here’s a really good recipe for banana bread that I made today.

1 3/4 cup of sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350. Sift flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside. Cream shortening until light, add sugar gradually, continuing to cream until fluffy. Beat in eggs.

Add flour mixture alternately with bananas, beginning and ending with flour. Spoon into a well-greased 9x5x3 loaf pan and bake about 1 hour, until loaf pulls slightly from sides of pan and is springy to the touch.

Cool upright in pan for ten minutes, then turn out on a wire rack and cool before slicing.

I seem to forget to take photos before we start chowing down on things…
