  2. In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and bananas. 
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to banana mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.
  4. Fill 18 paper-lined muffni cups two-thirds full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
