“I am always buying more bananas than I can eat. My mom's recipe is my favorite way to use them. You can substitute one tsp of vinegar for the lemon juice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven at 325 degrees.
  3. Cream together the shortening and sugar.
  4. Add the eggs and mix well.
  5. Mash the bananas. I find a potato masher works well. Add them to the mixture.
  6. Mix the baking soda into the milk, then add alternately to the banana mixture with the 2 cups of flour.
  7. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour.
