1/2 cup Crisco
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon soda

Cream together the sugar and Crisco. Mix the flour with the salt and baking powder. Mix the baking soda with the buttermilk. Add the flour to the sugar mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Add the two eggs and the mashed bananas, and vanilla.

Bake in a 13x9 pan for 35-40 minutes, or until it tests done, in a 350 degree oven. While the cake is still hot, top with topping mixture.

Topping (Can double this):
