Grandma's Delicious Homemade Banana Cake Recipe

One of my very favorite cakes happens to be homemade banana cake! If you love banana cake like I do...you have to to try out this recipe that I got from my grandmother about 20 years ago. This cake comes out with just the right amount of banana taste to it and it's very moist which is how I like my cakes. You don't have to frost it all or you can frost it with a cream cheese or vanilla frosting.

Grandma's Banana Cake Recipe

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon table salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup mashed ripe banana
2/3 cup cold milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Grease lightly and flour two 9" round baking pans. In a bowl combine the first 5 ingredients. Add shortening and banana, beat on low speed until combined. Add milk, eggs and vanilla; beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Turn batter into prepared pans. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until done. Great topped with your favorite cream cheese frosting.
