“This is a recipe that my mother got from her mother. It never lasts long in any household. Make sure your bananas are very, very ripe. They should be brown all over for the best flavor (and easier mashing.)”

  1. The best way to combine the ingredients is to put either the eggs or the melted shortening in first, followed by the dry ingredients, followed by the last ingredient (shortening or eggs.)
