One of my favorite treats is banana nut bread. I enjoy it in the morning with a cup of coffee and I also enjoy it in the afternoon with a cup of coffee. So when I had a few overripe bananas lately I whipped up a tasty loaf.
The first thing I did was peel 3-4 of the overripe bananas and mash them up.
Next, I mixed together 1 1/4 cups sugar and 1/2 cup softened butter before adding 2 eggs and blending well. After this, I added the bananas, 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat with a mixer until smooth. Once this was done, I combined 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt until well moistened. The final step involved folding in 1 cup of chopped pecans. Pour batter into an 8 inch loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
Let cool then enjoy! Yum.
P.S. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can make your own by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk.
