Banana Bread

Circle B Kitchen

1 3/4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 lg. Eggs

¾ cups sugar

1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 3 med)

1/3 cup buttermilk

1 Tbsp vegetable oil

1 Tbsp vanilla

½ cup chopped nuts

Spray a medium-sized loaf pan (9 1/2 x 5) with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

In a smallish bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

In a larger bowl, beat eggs and sugar until thick and light, about 5 min. (this really makes a difference!)

Mix in mashed bananas, buttermilk, oil and vanilla and slowly add in the dry ingredients and beat until just blended. Stir in the chopped nuts.

Transfer to the prepared loaf pan. Bake about an hour at 325 degrees. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool another 30 minutes before slicing.
