Mom’s Banana Bread

…and probably her moms before that – all I know is that this recipe card in my moms box is well worn.  This is a really basic recipe, but so moist and yummy.  Banana bread now makes me think of Shanelle, who taught me to slather butter on thick, warm slices of this stuff.

1/2 c shortening
2 eggs
1/2 t salt
1/2 c sour milk (add t t vinegar to 1/2 c milk and let sit a few minutes)
1 1/2 c sugar
1 t soda
2 c flour
1 c mashed banana

Cream shortening and sugar.  Add eggs.  Combine soda, salt, flour and add in.  Alternate sour milk and mashed banana.  Bake at 350 until done.  (45-55 minutes for large pans, 20ish-30ish for smaller)
