2 3/4 cup flour                2 eggs
  2 tsp baking powder        1/2 cup chopped nuts ( can use walnuts or pecans)
  1/4 tsp baking soda        1 tsp vanilla
  dash of salt                    2 tsp milk
  1/2 cup shortening          1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  1 cup sugar


1)  In small bowl - combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt .

2)    In large bowl -  beat shortening until creamy - add sugar gradually, beat until light and fluffy.

3)    Add eggs 1 at a time to shortening mixture - beat until light and fluffy

4)    Add nuts and beat well

5)    In separate small bowl - combine vanilla, milk & mashed bananas

6)    Add dry & liquid ingredients alternately - using spoon, stir after each addition until smooth.

7)    Spread into greased sided cookie sheet of jelly roll pan ( at least 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 1 )

Bake at preheated 350 degree oven  10 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  Top may be golden brown.  Cool completely before frosting.


1/4 cup mashed ripe bananas  -  4 tbs butter or oleo/margarine  -  2 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Beat butter/oleo until creamy.  Add powdered sugar and bananas alternately beating until light and fluffy.
  ( use more powdered sugar as needed so frosting is spreadable, not runny)

I let sit a little or put in refrigerator before cutting - makes it little easier to cut
