Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Cup butter
1 1/2 Cups sugar
2 eggs
4 very ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons buttermilk
2 Cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons salt
6 Tablespoons butter
10 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
5 Tablespoons milk
1 Cup chopped pecans or more if you like


Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar. Mash bananas, beat 2 eggs and add to bananas with vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well and add to creamed butter and sugar. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture and beat well. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans 9 x 5 x 3 inch.

Bake 45 to 50 min until bread pulls away from sides of pan. (Just don’t overcook). Cool.

To prepare topping, melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until very syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Pour over bread, spreading to all corners and place under broiler till brown and bubbly. WATCH CLOSELY. DO NOT LET BURN!
