Once upon a time I made sad, dry banana bread. It was pathetic how bad it was. Then my sweet friend Kara gave me her not so secret recipe and I never looked back.
I have a bowl full of nasty bananas, Danya needs help, and Karen has extra buttermilk....so let's get baking!
Kara's Amazingly Tasty Always Divine Banana Bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3-4 bananas, mashed ( I always use 4)
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup buttermilk or soured milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup nuts chopped (I use almonds and add a splash of almond extract)
cream butter and sugar. Add bananas. Mix. Add all remaining ingredients
except nuts. Mix. Add nuts. Stir. Pour into greased and floured loaf
pan. Bake at 350 for 1-1 1/2 hours until done. Outside will be dark, so
DON'T PANIC. Makes 1 loaf.
Try not to eat it all at once.
