I first tasted this bread almost 20 years ago & my friend, who always shares good recipes, immediately shared it with me. If you don't have a good banana bread recipe, I hope you try this one. I've never tried another one after tasting this. It's moist & super good!
1 1/2 c. sugar
pinch of salt
1 t. soda
1/3 c. buttermilk
2 c. flour
3 large or 4 small bananas, mashed
1 c. nuts, chopped (can use mini chocolate chips)
1 t. vanilla
Cream together the shortening & sugar. Add the eggs & salt & mix well.
Dissolve the soda in the buttermilk. (I often use 1 T. powdered buttermilk & water in place of the fresh buttermilk). Add to the creamed mixture. Add the rest of the ingredients & mix well.
Pour into 1 large or 2 small greased loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let sit in pans for about 10 minutes & then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
Note: I love it with the mini chocolate chips, but my hubby prefers the nuts!
I am sharing this with Tea Party Tuesday .
