  • 1
    Move oven rack to low position so that tops of pans will be in center of oven. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottoms only of 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans or 1 (9x5-inch) loaf pan with shortening or cooking spray.

    In large bowl, stir sugar and butter until well mixed. Stir in eggs until well mixed. Stir in bananas, buttermilk and vanilla; beat with spoon until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt just until moistened. Stir in nuts. Divide batter evenly between 8-inch pans or pour into 9-inch pan.
  • 3
    Bake 8-inch loaves about 1 hour, 9-inch loaf about 1 hour 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on cooling rack 10 minutes.

    Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.

Expert Tips

  • Omit nuts. Stir 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries into batter.
  • For a quick and refreshingly different breakfast, top slices of banana bread with your favorite fruit-flavored yogurt, sliced fresh bananas and some chopped nuts.
  • To substitute for the buttermilk, measure 1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1/2 cup.
