My Mom's Banana Bread

This banana bread is amazing. I made it for the first time tonight and even though I haven't perfected it like my mom, it's still a tasty treat for everyone.

Place in blender:
2 eggs
1/2 cup shortening
1 and 1/2 tbsp. Milk (feel free to add a little more if the mixture seems dry)
1 tsp. lemon juice
3 large, ripe bananas
Blend till smooth

Sift together in a large bowl:
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp. baking poweder
1/2 tsp salt

Pour mixture from blender over the dry ingredients in the bowl. Stir until the flour is dampened. Bake in a greased loaf pan at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.
