Anna's Banana Muffins



These Muffins are so simple and so good. I got the recipe from my moms old Better Homes and Gardens cook book, and gave it a face lift.
1 3/4 Cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 Cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 cup mashed ripe Banana
1/4 chopped nuts
Preheat the oven to 350
 Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and the nutmeg and cinnamon. Set aside.
  In a mixing bowl beat sugar and shortening till it's light, scraping the sides of the bowl often.
Add eggs and milk, beat till smooth. Add flour mixture and banana alternately to cream mixture, beating till smooth after each addition. Fold in nuts.
 Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full, bake for about 8 minutes, (more or less depending on your oven) or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Remove from pan and enjoy warm or cold.
This recipe makes one dozen, so I usually double it.
