I love the smell of banana bread baking in the kitchen. My grandmother came up with the recipe and used to make this bread quite often when I was a child.
The tangy buttermilk in the batter adds a rich flavor to the cake. Fold in raisins or chocolate chips for an extra special treat.
1/2 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup mashed banana
Mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, milk and banana in a large bowl.
In another bowl mix dry ingredients.
Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients and pour into a greased pan.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 – 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Cool and sprinkle with icing sugar.
