Banana Bread

Banana Bread

I had some old bananas that needed to be cooked so I made bread today. This is my mother in law’s “Low Fat Banana Bread” recipe. It is really yummy and makes 2 loaves.

1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 c bananas (or 3 medium bananas)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 c buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 c flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

*hint: if you don’t have buttermilk add 1 Tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to regular milk and let stand 5 minutes.

Mix together, pour into 2 greased and floured bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour 15 minutes, depending on the oven! Make sure it is cooked through, let stand in pan for 5 minutes then pop out each loaf and put on cooling rack.

I personally don’t like a hard crust on my bread so after 45 minutes (or until golden brown) I cover bread with aluminum foil to keep from over cooking.
