Banana Bread



1 ¾ cup flour

2 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

½ cup chopped nuts



1/3 cup shortening

2/3 cup brown sugar


Add:  2 eggs

1 cup mashed bananas (2 or 3)


Grease and flour a loaf pan.  Bake 1 hour at 350.


NOTES:  comes out a lot better if you put it into two or three smaller loaf  pans and cook for less time.  It benefits from the addition of liquid, like a few tablespoons of milk.


As usual, use a variety of flours and nuts.
