Buttermilk banana bread
Make no mistake, this could be the best banana bread you ever make. Just look at it. None of those dark flecks of banana that usually abound in banana breads. Just beautiful bread studded with bananas that actually look like bananas. Crazy, I know, but I’m kinda smitten with it. Don’t ya think it’s pretty?
Recipe: Buttermilk Banana Bread
(slightly adapted from My Kitchen Cafe)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup mashed bananas (I use about 3 bananas)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Spray 1 large loaf pan with baking spray with flour, such as Bakers Joy.
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 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
