Banana Spice Cake

I was visiting my Nana and Papa this past weekend and due to her ill health she was unable to bake. She had me bake two cakes to use up the leftover bananas. The other will be posted tomorrow - not sure I could pick a favorite!

2 0r 3 bananas =1 cup
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup shortening
2/3 cup sour milk (1 tsp. vinegar to regular milk)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup nuts

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside. Cream together the shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each. Add lemon juice, sour milk, and vanilla and beat well. Alternate between adding the bananas and dry ingredients until well blended.

Grease and flour a 13x9" pan. Add the banana mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done.
