Banana Bread!!

I am not a banana person. I don't know why, I just never really have been. But I do looove banana bread. I made this bread and then ate about half of it while watching the first season of True Blood.

Banana Bread
adapted from

  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Spray one 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray coating.
Blend together the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, oil and bananas.
In a separate bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, baking soda and salt. Add to banana mixture and stir in walnuts. Mix well.
Pour into prepared loaf pan and bake 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

While it was baking I combined butter and cinnamon and as soon as it came out of the oven I spread the cinnamon butter on it and made it extra tasty!
