Best Ever Banana Bread

So I'm sure you already have a tried and true banana bread recipe, but before you shove this one to the side, you need to give it a try! At the market this past summer it was one of my best sellers and it wasn't unusual for me to have requests to make up a few extra loaves for individuals. Like chocolate chip cookies, banana bread is one that I've tried many recipes in attempt to find that perfect one. This particular recipe is compiled from a couple different ones, I'd like to think it's my own but I'm sure there just might be one like it already out there.

What makes this bread so special? It's so good, I know you won't be able to stop at just one slice! It's full of banana flavor and incredibly moist. You'll also be happy to know it's simple to pull together, just dump everything in a bowl and mix together. It also freezes really well, I like to make up at least a few loaves at a time and stick them in our freezer. I can pull out a loaf anytime we feel like having some bread. Enjoy!

Best Ever Banana Bread

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine eggs, bananas, oil, buttermilk and vanilla; add to flour mixture, stirring just until combined. Fold in nuts if desired.

Pour into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan or 3 mini pans. Bake at 325 for 1 hour 20 minutes for large loaf or 45 minutes for smaller, or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.
