1 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 C shortning
1/3 C mashed banana (I like a little more-a large banana)
1 egg
1/4 C milk
1/3 C nuts, chopped (optional)

2 tsp melted butter
1 tsp hot water
2 tsp lemon juice
1 C powdered sugar

Measure and sift dry ingredients. Beat shortning and banana for 2 minutes; add egg and beat 1 minute more. Add milk alternately with dry ingredients. Blend well. Stir in nuts, if using. Bake in 9 x 13 pan at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes.

Frost while still slightly warm.
I double the recipe for a nice cake.
