Recipe type: bread
Serves: 2 loaves
  • 1½ cups very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, softened
  • 2⅛ cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  1. Preheat Oven to 275 F (yes that's correct : )
  2. Mash up bananas really good with a fork and mix in lemon juice. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda & salt. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream butter & sugar until fluffy.
  5. Add in eggs, one at a time & then add in vanilla.
  6. Beat in the flour mixture alternating it with the buttermilk.
  7. Fold in bananas.
  8. Pour batter into two greased & flour loaf pans & bake in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and place directly into the freezer to cool for about 20-30 minutes. This will make the bread incredibly moist.
