Why I Love This Recipe

Taken from the WHITE HOUSE COOKBOOK published in 1968. I have made this one for years and haven't found any better ones yet. So the only thing I changed from what I am giving you is that we like 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans mixed in too. Here Goes!

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 Cup of butter (do not sub. margarin)
1 Cup of sugar
2 Eggs
3 RIPE bananas, mashed to equal (1 cup) Probably won't even need 2
2 Cups of regular all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 Cup of Buttermilk


Blend butter and sugar. Add well beaten eggs. Beat in mashed bananas. Sift flour, soda and salt together and add to above mixture alternatively with the buttermilk. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 1 hour in well greased pan.

Stir in chopped walnuts.

(May need to cover after 30 minutes to not burn top)
