As with all of my recipes, I have tweaked a recipe that came my way years ago. Hope you enjoy, this is one of my family's faves....
Cream together in a Food Processor
1/2 C Butter (1 stick)
1 C mashed bananas (3-4)Best when very ripe
1 C sugar
1/2 C Buttermilk (if you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can mix 1 T vinegar and milk to measure 1/2 cup liquid)
Add to creamed mixture
1 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
Mix, then add
2 Cups Flour
Mix and pour into a greased bread pan. My family loves chocolate chips in their banana bread, so I add 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips at this point. (mini chips are key, anything larger will sink to the bottom of the bread)
Gently stir chips. (don't get carried away, or they will all sink) Wipe sides of pan and place in preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes.
