2 cups flour
2 teasponns baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup mashed banana
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and sugar into a bowl.
Add shortening, eggs, and 1/2 cup of banana.
Stir, then beat for 2 minutes.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup of banana and lemon juice.
Beat 2 more minutes.
Fold in nuts.
Pour into greased and floured loaf pan (you can use 1 large loaf pan,
but I find they bake more evenly if you divide it into 4 small loaf pans).
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes (if it is in a large loaf pan)
or about 40 minutes (if it is in small loaf pans).
