Ingredients

2 c
milk
1 Tbsp
shortening
4 c
bread flour
2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
+ 1 teaspoon baking powder
2
very ripe bananas
2 stick
butter, melted
1 c
cinnamon & sugar mixed divided

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Grease bundt pan and set aside. Heat oven to 350.
2
Warm your milk and shortening on the stovetop on very low until shortening is melted; turn off heat.
3
Mix flour, salt, baking powder with milk mixture until dough forms. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. (I use an upsidedown cup.)
4
Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Toss them in dry cinnamon & sugar mix.
Drop biscuit pieces into greased bundt pan until bottom is covered. Slice 1 banana and cover biscuits with banana pieces. Create another layer of biscuit pieces, another layer of the 2nd banana and so on.
5
Mix melted butter with cinnamon and sugar until it's very thick. Pour into bundt pan over biscuits & bananas. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

NOTE: Put a pan under your bundt pan - it bubbles over a little! This turns out amazing. My family devoured the whole thing! Thank you Jesus for baking with me :0)
