4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening (butter flavored)
2 cups bananas, ripe
1 cup buttermilk (if you don't have buttermilk on hand you can use 2 Tbsp. of vinegar and milk to make 1 cup liquid)
Mix until combined in your mixer or with a hand held mixer. This should only take a minute or two. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes if you do loaves, or 12-15 minutes for muffins. Grease your loaf pans or use cupcake liners.
