Banana Date Bread

Here is another favorite recipe from the Pickity Place cookbook.

3 - 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

2 cups mashed ripe bananas
1/2 cup chopped dates
2 tbl. lemon juice
3/4 cup shortening
1 - 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Sift dry ingredients together.

Mash the bananas and add the lemon juice to them.

Cream the shortening and sugar, add the eggs and beat thoroughly until very light and fluffy.

Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk.

Fold in the bananas, dates, and nuts; mix well.

Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350° for one hour, or until done. Cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove and cool on wire racks.

I'm going to make this one today (bananas are just right). I just posted a modification to my grandmother's applesauce cake on my Cabinet of Wonders--I think you might like it. Anyway, thanks for the yummy sounding stuff. Can't wait to try it.
