Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread Recipe

Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread Recipe

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
4 very ripe bananas, mashed*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Mash bananas, beat the eggs and add to the bananas with the vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well. Add to creamed butter and sugar mixture. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture, beat well. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9"x 5"x 3" loaf pans. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until bread pulls away from sides of pan. Cool

6 tablespoons butter
10 tablespoons dark brown sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 cup or more, chopped pecans

Melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until very syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Pour over bread, spreading to all the corners and place under broiler until bubbly and brown. WATCH CLOSELY so topping does not burn.

Note: Use the softest mushy bananas that you can. I leave them on the counter until they are almost black. This recipe was posted along time ago on Gail's Recipe Swap by nlb. It originally came from a Jr. League in Austin cookbook.
