This bread is definitely lighter (in color and consistency) than your regular everyday banana bread recipe. I love the buttery/crispy crust on it!
You're going to hear me mention MKC (My Kitchen Cafe) a lot over here - in fact, it has its own tag for quick reference. ALL of the recipes I have ever tried from there have been incredible and this recipe definitely lives up to the reputation! :)
Buttermilk Banana Bread
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
2 Eggs, well beaten
1 Cup Mashed Bananas (about 3 bananas)
4 Tbsp Buttermilk
1 3/4 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Vanilla
Dash Baking Soda
Cream butter and sugar - add eggs, bananas, buttermilk, and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture - mix until combined. Divide batter into greased and floured pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 50-55 minutes OR until toothpick comes out clean.
Yields: One large loaf pan of bread
