Banana Bread

Contributor:  Shelley Jones
CC Original

1/2 cup melted shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp lemon juice
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix shortening, sugar and eggs until creamy.  Add bananas, lemon juice, baking powder and salt.  Stir in flour.  Add 1 cup nuts if desired.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Variety:  Add 1 cup cranberries instead of nuts (or 1/2 cup of each) for a festive touch.  The cranberry-banana bread was a college favorite.
