Southern Banana Bread Recipe

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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Makes 1 loaf.

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