Mrs. Myers’ Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. table salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 quart mashed bananas*, about 8 (ripe to overripe)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter two loaf pans. (I butter generously.)
  2. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. With the mixer on low, add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the vanilla, buttermilk and bananas.
  5. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Divide batter between the two prepared pans. Bake for approximately 1 hour.
  6. Remove from oven and turn loaves out onto cooling rack immediately. Let cool.
  7. Serves 2 loaves

Notes

I'm probably stating the obvious, but in case you don't know, overripe bananas freeze beautifully - just peel them and place them in a ziplock back in the freezer. When you're ready to use them, place them in a colander in the sink to drain; they'll give up a lot of liquid and look totally repulsive, but they work beautifully.
