1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cups shortening
1 1/3 cups sugar
4 eggs
5 very ripe mashed bananas


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together shortening and sugar.

Add eggs one at a time.

In a seperate bowl combine first 4 ingredients, the add to the wet mixture.

Finally, add in mashed bananas. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.

Bake for about 1 hour.
