Originally uploaded by Saltygal.
1/2 c unsalted butter softened
1 c sugar ( I like to use lt brown or 1/2 lt brown and 1/2 white)
2 eggs
1 c mashed bananas
2 c flour sifted
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1/4 c buttermilk or sour milk
1/2 c chopped walnuts or almonds or mini chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffly
Beat in eggs one at a time
Add bananas and mix well.
In another bowl sift flour,salt soda and baking powder stir in nuts or chips
Next, alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to banana mixture beginning and ending with flour and mixing well after each addition. . Pour into a greased and floured 9x5" loaf pan Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 60 -75 minutes, allow to cool in pan on rack 5 minutes then remove from pan and continue cooling on rack
I highly recommend doubling the recipe because it's so good fresh out of the oven but also delicious the next day
