- Use ripe or even slightly over-ripe bananas, you want just a little bit of brown to them. The flavor and texture just blends better that way.
- This recipe calls for shortening, don't try to substitute it with butter or vegetable oil because it will not work!
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix together mashed bananas, shortening, sugar and eggs. Slowly add in flour, baking powder and salt and beat well to combine. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
