Banana Nut Bread

With our weather turning cooler and the leaves almost gone, it is banana nut bread time of year. My Mom who will be 94 next month, created this recipe several years ago. I have yet to find one that I like as good as this one. Let me know if you try it and how you like it!

2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
2 Eggs Beaten
1 T Vanilla

1/2 C Oil
1/4 C Buttermilk
1 3/4 C Sifted Flour
1 1/4 C Brown Sugar
1/2 t Salt
1 t Soda
1 Cup Chopped Nuts (or more)

Preheat oven at 350 and bake 1 hour.

Sift together flour, salt, soda . Mix well. Beat eggs until foamy, adding sugar slowly.
Mix but be careful not to over mix. Add oil, bananas, vanilla, buttermilk and nuts. Add dry ingredients slowly add to above mixture. Mix, but be careful not to over mix.
