2 1/4 cups of flour
1 2/3 cups of sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup of shortening
2/3 cup of buttermilk (I mix 2/3 cup of milk with 2/3 Tablespoon of vinegar and let sit for 10 minutes)
3 or 4 mashed bananas
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9 X 13 pan. Blend all ingredients together on low for 30 seconds and then on high for 3 minutes. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
1 pound of powdered sugar
3/4 cup of shortening
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of milk
Pinch of salt
Blend sugar, shortening, and vanilla. Then add milk and salt. Mix until creamy and smooth. Spread on cooled cake. For best results, keep cake refrigerated after frosting.
NOTE: If you like a lot of frosting on your cake, double the frosting recipe.
