Best Banana Bread

This is a family favorite because it is so light and moist. All my kids are grown with families of their own and they still request this bread around the holidays. It's great as a breakfast bread, warmed with butter, or served as a side with a salad.

Ingredients

4
ripe bananas
1/2 c
butter, softened
1 c
sugar
4 Tbsp
buttermilk
1 tsp
baking soda
2
eggs
2 c
all purpose flour
1/8 tsp
salt
1/2 c
pecans, chopped (optional)

Step-By-Step

1In a large bowl, mash bananas with your hands (best) or you can use an electric mixer.

2Add all remaining ingredients and stir with a spoon until all dry ingredients are blended. Do not over mix.

3Pour into greased pan(s): 1 large loaf pan, 2 mini-loaf pans, or muffin pans. (Do not use paper muffin liners as these muffins will stick to the paper. Grease each muffin cup)

4Bake large loaf for 60 minutes; mini loaves for 30-40 minutes; or muffins for 20-25 minutes. Use the toothpick test to be sure it's done. Don't over bake...this recipe does not brown as dark as most.
