    Could I use Vegetable Oil to replace the shorting?I thought that I would ask.I don't use shorting that often but to do home made frosting for a cake for a person's birthday.

    I made this tonight and am going to have a good breakfast tomorrow! This was a good change from banana bread. I actually made this in 2 loaf pans and it took about 75 minutes to cook. Thanks for sharing this great recipe momluvs2cook =)

    I made this for the family. And they really loved it, Rob did just what I thought he would do, ate half of the cake by himself. They soo enjoyed it, I ate a bite and I thought it was really good too. Thanks very very much.
