Yield: 1 loaf
Cream together the shortening and sugar. Add the bananas and the egg and stir to combine. Sift together the flour, soda, and salt. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir just until combined. The batter will be lumpy. Spoon the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
