Bittman's recipe next to my mom's handwritten one.

I love baked goods with bananas. They're delicious. I wanted to make some banana bread this week so I checked out Bittman's recipe. My mom has a recipe that I love, but it uses shortening which isn't my favorite. I wanted to use butter and some whole grain flour, and both of those ingredients were in Bittman's recipe on page 249. The recipes were pretty similar. I only changed Bittman's recipe in that I doubled the amount of baking soda and used 1 tbsp of lemon juice mixed with the mashed bananas, which is what my mom always does.
