Banana Cake

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sugar
2/3 cups solid vegetable shortening
2 eggs
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup buttermilk
2 bananas, peeled and sliced

2 cups heavy cream, whipped
sugar to taste

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium
bowl. Beat together sugar and shortening in large bowl until well
combined. Beat in eggs, mashed bananas and vanilla. Beat in flour
mixture. Then beat in buttermilk. Pour batter equally into two
greased and floured 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees
for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely.

Frost one cake with whipped cream frosting, and placed a single
layer of banana slices on top. Then place second cake on top, and
frost entire cake. Garnish with banana slices.

Tip: When making whipped cream frosting, I know that a lot of
people don't add sugar when whipping. From my experiences with
this cake, I find that while whipping the cream I like to add some
granulated sugar to it to make it a little more sweet-it complements
the cake better. Also: make sure that your heavy cream is cold
and you whip it until good peaks form, or else it won't frost well.
