Chocolate Banana Cake


2/3 cups shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
4 Tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
2 or 3 mashed bananas
1/2 cup sour milk - 1 tsp. vinegar
2 1/4 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Sift dry ingredients and set aside. Cream shortening. Add sugar and cream well. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each. Add vanilla and cocoa and beat until blended. Alternate adding the dry ingredients, banana, and milk until well blended.

Grease and flour a 13x9" pan. Add mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until done.

This cake (along with the Banana Spice Cake) are delicious alone. But a good chocolate frosting on this is delicious. Or cream cheese. Whatever you prefer. Enjoy!
