Buttermilk Banana Bread
I have such a HUGE love of bananas and I thought it was weird how I could love bananas in everything from oatmeal, to smoothies, ice cream, and pancakes, but I have never LOVED a single banana bread recipe I've ever made. I was thinking for a few years there that I just didn't like banana bread, but lo and behold....it was just that I had never found the RIGHT recipe.
Well, this one blew my socks off and I have already made it 3 times in the month of December.
Yeah...it's THAT good.
This banana bread makes me SWOON.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup mashed bananas (I use about 3 average sized bananas)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Grease and flour 1 large loaf pan (9 1/4 X 5 1/4-inch) or mini loaf pans.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together.
Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla until the batter is well mixed.
Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and soda.
Mix until well combined.
Divide batter into greased and floured bread pans and
bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes (if using 1 large loaf pan)
or 35 minutes for mini loaves and until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cut it up and rejoice over the deliciousness that you just created!
