1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/3 cups shortening (or softened butter)

2 eggs

1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 bananas)

Butter or cooking spray (to grease the pan)

A little extra flour (also for the pan)

Preheat the oven
to 350°

Step 2:

Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl with
either an electric hand mixer or a mixing spoon


1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

2/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

Add the wet
ingredients to the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl and mix thoroughly


1/3 cup shortening

2 eggs

3 peeled bananas

4Spray non-stick spray (or shortening)
on the bottom and sides inside the loaf pan to prevent the bread from sticking to the pan Safety--do not inhale the non-stick spray

oven is preheated to 350°F, place the filled loaf pan on the middle rack in the oven Safety--be careful not to burn your hand when you put the loaf into the oven as it is very hot.

after 55 minutes, remove the loaf pan from the oven and insert a toothpick or fork into the center and remove it to see if it is fully cooked.

Safety--use a hot pad to remove the loaf from the oven as the pan will be very hot.
