Recipe by Chef by Chance

I am always buying more bananas than I can eat. My mom's recipe is my favorite way to use them. You can substitute one tsp of vinegar for the lemon juice.

PAC Spring 2008 ~ Nice and moist and not too sweet. Used butter in place of shortening. Thanks for posting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven at 325 degrees.
  3. Cream together the shortening and sugar.
  4. Add the eggs and mix well.
  5. Mash the bananas. I find a potato masher works well. Add them to the mixture.

  7. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour.
