This is a pretty easy, basic recipe that you can add pretty much anything to. Nuts, craisins, chocolate chips... whatever floats your boat.
I usually change the flour to whole wheat or at least half of it to while wheat flour and add cinnamon and cloves or nutmeg.
1 ¼ c sugar
½ c butter, softened
1 ½ c mashed ripe banana
½ c buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
2 ½ c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Grease bottom of a 9 X 5 bread pan.
Mix together sugar and butter. Stir in eggs until well blended. Stir in banana, buttermilk and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and mix lightly.
Pour batter into pan. Bake 50 – 60 minutes. Cool 10 minutes on rack before removing from pan.
