Classic Buttermilk Banana Bread
Posted on January 20, 2015
I have been eating a lot of bananas lately but I just can’t keep up with the bananas left in the fruit basket at the end of the week! SO this past week, I decided to make buttermilk banana bread with the overly ripe bananas I have accumulated.
What you need:
- – 7-8 overly ripe bananas (mashed)
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks, room temp)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3 cups flour (sifted)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 buttermilk
- 5 eggs
1 to 2 cups chocolate chips or chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees
In a separate bowl combine/sift flour, baking soda and salt.
Add eggs one at a time to the butter/sugar mixture. Then add the vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well.
Next, add the flour mixture about 1/3 at a time until fully incorporated. Stir in the bananas and then chocolate chips/walnuts as you see fit.
Divide the mixture among the two loaf pans and pop in the oven for about an hour or so- until the bread has browned and passed the “clean poke” challenge.
