This is my Mom’s banana bread recipe from way way back.  Since I make this so often, I remember all the ingredients by heart.  Walnuts are optional but I include lots of them.

Prep time:  20 min             Cook time:    1 hour                 Serves:   8 – 10

Preheat oven to 350 degrees






  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 very ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk



Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, into a medium size bowl.

In a separate bowl mix the butter until creamed.

To the creamed mixture, add the sugar, eggs, mashed banana and milk.

Stir (by hand) dry ingredients into the creamed mixture.

Pour into a greased bread pan, cook 350° for 1 hour.  (walnuts optional)

Enjoy !
