2 to 3 bananas, mashed
¼ c buttermilk

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese
½ c butter
1 1lb box confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 chopped pecans (opt)

Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt. In another bowl mix shortening, sugar, beaten eggs and vanilla. Beat 1 1/2 minutes. Add buttermilk and flour mixture alternately with mashed bananas while beating about 2 minutes. It may be baked in 2-9 inch cake pans or a 9 x 13 pan that has been greased and floured. Bake at 350 degrees for 25–45 minutes or until toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cool completely then frost or eat plain. In a bowl, blend together the cream cheese and butter. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. Stir in pecans, or reserve them to sprinkle over the frosted cake. Fill and frost the cake when it is completely cool.
