1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 to 3 medium)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup chopped nuts
FROSTING (optional):
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons milk
2-1/2 to 3 cups confectioners' sugar

In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in bananas and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts.
Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
For frosting, in a large saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool to lukewarm.
Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cake.
