Banana Bread (7)

1 3/4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups banana, well mashed, overripe
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

With electric beater on low, fluff shortening in a small bowl, until soft and creamy. Add sugar gradually. Beat in eggs in a slow stream. With a fork, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture, 1/2 the bananas another 1/3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the bananas then the last of the flour mixture. Fold in walnuts.

Turn into a greased and floured baking unit or a 2 1/2 quart mold and cover. Place on a rack in crockpot. Cover crockpot, but prop the lid open with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let the excess steam escape. Cook on HIGH for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes.

Serve Warm.
