Buttermilk Banana BreadPrep: 15 min Cook: 60 min Servings: 15by Salad Foodie390 recipes>
Does the world need another banana bread recipe? I thought not, until one day I had not only ripe bananas to use up but also buttermilk. It was a culinary match made in heaven. I love the sublime texture and moistness that buttermilk imbues. This is a more tender grain than most nutbreads so I highly recommend making it ahead and storing it overnight in the fridge. That will firm up the bread and make slicing it a breeze. Otherwise if cut too soon, it may tend to crumble.
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/2 cup cooking oil
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon banana extract (or vanilla extract)
- 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a 9" x 5" loaf pan and set aside.
- In medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- In large bowl whisk together the eggs and mashed bananas; add buttermilk, oil, sugar and extract.
- Stir the flour mixture into banana mixture just enough to combine (the dough is not as thick as typical nutbreads.) Stir in walnuts and pour into prepared loaf pan.
- Bake 60 to 70 minutes (less if dark pan is used) until center is firm when pressed lightly and toothpick tests clear.
- Remove from oven; cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely before slicing (it's best to wrap and store overnight in fridge before slicing.)
