INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and add shortening, eggs, vanilla and bananas. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed with electric mixer. Pour batter into prepared pan.
