Buttermilk Banana Bread


I have been craving banana bread for some time and this recipe from My Kitchen Cafe caught my eye. I made it last week and it didn't last 24 hours in my home. It was simple, flavorful and moist. I actually used milk since I didn't have buttermilk on hand and it was still great, I am sure it will be even better with real buttermilk next time I make it. I will be using this recipe from now on. Love it!

Buttermilk Banana Bread- From My Kitchen Cafe

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

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 usually have a bit leftover for a few of my mini bread pans).
