We received the most response to a recipe ever when we posted a letter from a newsletter subscriber who said it reminded her of her auntâ€™s banana bread she had been searching for 44 years! And it is the best way to use over ripe bananas.
Makes 1 loaf
1. Combine bananas with buttermilk and baking soda in a bowl.
2. Beat butter with brown sugar until light. Beat in egg and vanilla.
3. In another bowl combine flour with baking powder. Add flour to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk/bananas beginning and ending with flour. If you do this in a food processor add all the buttermilk/bananas to the butter mixture and blend and then briefly blend in flour.
4. Transfer to a buttered loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven for 50 to 60 minutes.
