Banana Bread/Cake


My dad brought over a huge bunch of ripe bananas one day. We had to eat them, and finish them quick! So my smart husband took the opportunity to SUGGEST Banana Bread.

“Hey, I like banana bread. Can you make banana bread? I like the kind that Sis Joanne (O’Connell) made in India. Can you get the recipe from her? *big grin*”

So with a phone call, I found out I actually already have the recipe in the cookbook Sis Joanne had given me for a birthday. So I had my first go at making banana bread. It was so good I made another one 2 days later! (Well, we also had to finish up the rest of the bananas.)

Banana Cake

1/2 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup bananas, mashed
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cups buttermilk (I used normal milk with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, or vinegar will do) (you can also add 2/3 cups of nuts if you like)

Mix all the ingredients together and pour in a 9X13 inch greased and floured cake pan. Bake at 180 degrees celcius for 30 to 40 minutes. (I used a loaf pan and put the rest of the batter in muffin cups to make banana muffins)
