Banana Nut Bread

· ½ cup butter
· 1 cup sugar
· 2 eggs, beaten
· 3 mashed bananas (1 cup)
· 2 cups flour
· ½ teaspoon salt
· ½ teaspoon baking soda
· ½ teaspoon baking powder
· 3 tablespoons buttermilk
· ½ teaspoon vanilla
· ½ cup chopped nuts, optional

Beat butter and sugar together. Beat in eggs and bananas. Sift dry ingredients and add to banana mixture. Beat in milk and vanilla. Stir in nuts. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Double the recipe and cook in a Bundt pan. Over-ripe bananas also make a moister nut bread.

Banana Nut Bread made with half whole wheat flour. I also decreased the amount of sugar just a little bit. Still just as moist and yummy!
