2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup ripe mashed bananas
1 teaspoon lemon juice


Sift together dry ingredients. In a large bowl, cream together shortening and sugar. Add beaten eggs. Blend in bananas and lemon juice. Add the dry ingredients slowly to the banana mixture, combining thoroughly. Bake in a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan for about 75 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing.
