When Life Gives You Brown Bananas
For all of you who may actually be experiencing fall temperatures (it was in the 90's in Houston today) and for my Montana friends who are under a winter storm warning, here is our family's favorite banana bread recipe. Happy Baking!!!!
Banana Nut Bread
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar (I usually add less than this.)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups mashed banana
Mix in separate bowl:
2 cups flour
1 heaping tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
Add flour mixture to banana mixture alternately with 1/2 cup buttermilk.
Optional: 1 cup chopped pecans
Bake in 2 greased and floured loaf pans.
325 degrees for 1 1/4-1 1/2 hrs.
