Serves 10-12 | Prep Time 20min | Cook Time 60min


1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
2 lg. eggs
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4 to 6 medium)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts, if desired
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Place oven rack in lowest positon. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottoms only of 2 loaf pans, 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 X 2 1/2 inches, or 1 loaf pan, 9 X 5 X 3 inches. I like to use the mini aluminum pans and it will require 4 of them, these are great for Friends & Co-Workers.

# 1 Mix sugar & margarine in large bowl.

# 2 Stir in eggs until well blended.

# 3 Add bananas, buttermilk, & vanilla. Beat untill smooth.

# 4 Stir in remaining ingrediants except nuts & oil just until moistened.

# 5 Fold in nuts & oil. Pour into pans.

Bake 8-inch loaves about 1 hour, 9-inch loaves about 1 1/2 hour, mini alunimum pans 45 minutes to 1 hour or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans: remove from pans.
