¾ cup butter, softened

1½ cups sugar

3 medium ripe bananas, mashed

2 eggs, well beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon salt

½ cup buttermilk

¾ cup chopped pecans or walnuts


In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add bananas, eggs and vanilla extract to the mixture, and combine until the batter is well mixed.

Sift flour into a separate bowl; add baking soda and salt to the bowl and mix. Alternate adding the dry mixture and the buttermilk to the banana mixture, stirring thoroughly after each addition. Add the nuts and mix well to incorporate.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
