I had some over ripe bananas that were smelling so sweet I decided to make banana bread. This is a staple at work as we always have extra ripe bananas on hand and to help with the food cost I make as many items as I can out of them. I am at home now for the summer so this banana bread is just for my husband and myself. Yum, I can't wait until it cools off.

4 ounces Butter
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 1/4 Cups Mashed Ripe Bananas
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1 Cup Walnuts
Cream together sugar and butter in a 5 quart mixer. Add eggs and vanilla. Sift all dry ingredients together. Mix buttermilk and banana together, add alternately with dry ingredients. Stir in walnuts.
Put into paper lined loaf pan and bake at 350 deg. About 1 hour.

Your banana bread looks lovely! Definitely a different recipe from my moms (hers is shortening based and no buttermilk) so I think I will give yours a try!!
