Better Than Your Grandma's Banana Bread

I wanted to share with you all my recipe for banana bread.  It's super easy, and tastes delicious!  I got this recipe, and pretty much all my recipes from my mother-in-law.  She truly should put together a cook book! 

I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as my family.

Sour Milk (Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar)
Very Ripe Bananas
Baking Powder
Baking Soda

Heat your oven to 350 degrees, and grease a loaf pan...I usually put the shortening on a plastic baggie and spread it around the pan, then flip the bag inside out, voila!  No mess greasing :)

With a handmixer or a kitchen mixer mix...

2/3 Cup Sugar and 1/3 Cup Shortening
Add 2 Eggs, and mix...
 Mix in 3 Tablespoons Sour Milk and  1 Cup Mashed Bananas...
*For sour milk use 3 tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
*I generally use more then a cup of bananas, but you need at least 1 cup
In another bowl sift together...
2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix together.  I usually fold the dry ingredients in a little bit at a time since I use my Kitchen Aid mixer, and I don't fee like wearing all the flour! 
Once everything is mixed together, transfer it to your loaf pan...
Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes...and then enjoy!
