Mom's Banana Bread

Banana Bread
2 c flour
½ tsp salt
½ c butter or shortening
1 c sugar
1 tsp lemon juice or vinegar
1tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 c mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
1/3 c milk
½ c chopped nuts

Sift the flour, soda and salt. Cream the butter and banana and blend thoroughly. Combine the milk and lemon juice, which will curdle a bit. Slowly and alternatively fold in the flour mixture and milk mixture beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Blend well after each addition. Stir in the nuts, then pour the batter in to a lavishly buttered 9x5x3 inch loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 1 hour or until the bread springs back when lightly touched in the center. *Note buttered and floured pan is very important, banana bread is very difficult to get out!
