EASY BANANA NUT BREAD
~ A Perennial Favorite ~


An easy banana nut bread that tastes rich but isn't loaded with calories.  Ripened bananas, buttermilk and walnuts or pecans make this a delicious quick bread.  Banana bread is a perfect way to use over ripened bananas.


Banana Nut Bread


Makes 1 loaf banana nut bread

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


Directions

Cream butter and sugar together.  Add eggs and vanilla and blend well.  Combine bananas and buttermilk.  Sift all dry ingredients together.  Add half of the dry ingredients along with the liquid mixture to the creamed mixture.  Mix well, then add the remainder of the dry ingredients and blend.  Stir in the nuts.  Line the bottom of a greased loaf pan with wax paper (or lightly flour a greased pan).  Pour batter into the pan and bake at 375°F (190°C) for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

If top of banana nut bread is becoming too brown, cover with tinfoil.
