Banana Loaf

Years ago a friend shared this Banana Bread recipe and it's been a long time favorite with my family.

The cast of characters -

2 sticks Butter or margarine (melted)
2 cups sugar (cream together with butter)
Add 2 eggs, one at a time, beating well.

Alternate the following:
3 cups flour, sifted
1 tsp salt
3 large RIPE bananas, mashed
1 tsp baking soda mixed with 1/4 cup buttermilk

Add 1 tsp vanilla
optional 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans
Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until center is firm and toothpick comes out clean.

This is the yummiest Banana bread I have ever tasted. So very moist. We cut into the first one and freeze the second. But it isn't long before the second one pops out of the freezer.

Love banana bread. This sounds good and moist. I always seem to have over-rippened bananas around.

Love banana bread. I have a few bananas that could be made into bread - perhaps I'll do it and greet Dearest this evening with the wonderful aroma! I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
