Buttermilk Banana Bread (One Loaf)
This banana bread is super moist and delish! I found it over at Mel's Kitchen Cafe (LOVE her!). I totally dig that it just makes one loaf, that is usually how many bananas I have left that get ripe enough for bread! I have made it a few times and always use her suggestion of cutting the sugar and adding an extra banana so that is how I have written it here. Enjoy!
Buttermilk Banana Bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
about 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas, 4 average sized bananas, I never measure
4 T buttermilk
1/2 t vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/8 t baking soda
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 1 large loaf pan.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add bananas and mix until mashed. Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and mix well. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Mix until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for at least 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
