Cindy’s Banana Bread
2 Sticks of butter, melted
5 over-ripe bananas
2 ½ cups of sugar
¾ cup buttermilk
3 cups of flour
1 ½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp vanilla
In a large bowl place butter, bananas, sugar and mash well. A potato masher works well for this part. Add eggs and mix well. Add buttermilk and vanilla.
In a separate bowl place the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix all ingredients well with a fork. Add one cup of flour at a time to the wet ingredients and blend well with a whisk until all the flour is incorporated.
This recipe makes to loaves. Pour batter in to a well greased loaf pan. Do not fill to the top as the batter will rise.
Bake at 325 degrees for 70 to 80 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
*optional: you can add 1 cup of walnuts or chocolate chips to the batter.
