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.

Ingredients:
Sugar
Shortening
Eggs
Sour Milk (Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar)
Very Ripe Bananas
Flour
Baking Powder
Baking Soda
Salt

Directions: 
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!
