Southern banana bread

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Unbleached flour
1 teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Butter or margarine
1 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 cup Mashed, ripe bananas
⅓ cup Buttermilk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
½ cup Chopped pecans

Everyone has banana bread recipes, but this one uses buttermilk which I thought was interesting.

Banana bread is made all over the Northern Hemisphere but this recipe is from the South.

Combine flour, soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Cream butter with sugar and beat in eggs with bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients and fold in nuts. Spoon into a greased 9 x 5-inch pan and bake in a preheated 350F oven for about an hour, or until bread tests done in the center.

Makes 1 loaf.

From the San Francisco Chronicle, 11/16/88.
