Buttermilk Banana Bread

I came across this version of banana bread this morning. I gave it a try and was thrilled with the results. It baked evenly and was perfect in taste and texture. It has a light buttery banana taste. My kids asked if I would make it again tomorrow. Thanks Melanie for sharing such a great recipe.

Buttermilk Banana Bread
from My kitchen Café
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 average sized bananas)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash baking soda
You can add 1 Cup of nuts if you like
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture. Mix until combined. Divide batter into greased and floured bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. This recipe makes about one large loaf of banana bread . I used (2) 7x4x2 3/8 Pani Mold Baking Baskets I found online. I tied a clear bread sack with natural raffia , It gave it a great presentation for giving to a kind neighbor.
