Banana Nut Bread

1/3 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup sourdough starter
1 cup mashed bananas
11/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan and set it aside. Preheat the oven to 350o.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar. Beat in the eggs until blended. Next stir in the sourdough starter and the bananas, then set them aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir the dry ingredients into the sourdough mixture until just blended. Fold in the nuts and pour the batter into a prepared pan. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 2 or 3 hours before cutting.
