Banana Bread

This is a FABULOUS Banana Bread Recipe. I'm posting it because I'm going to get up and make it as soon as I'm done here! This is by far my favorite banana bread recipe!

1 3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter, softened
2 eggs
1 3/4 c. mashed ripe bananas (3-4 medium)
3/4 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 c. chopped nuts if desired

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom of loaf pan. Mix sugar and butter in bowl. Stir in eggs until well blended. Add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients, except nuts, until moistened. Stir in nuts. Pour into pan. Bake 1 1/4 hours or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes. Loosen sides of loaf and remove from pan. Cool completely before slicing. Makes 1 loaf. If using little bread pans, cook for 55 minutes. For alternative, add nutmeg to batter. (Watch the time on the baking part, for some reason, it seems that every time I make this the baking time is different!)
