Yummy Banana Bread

I have found a couple nice Kitchen Shops during our visit to Florida.  I love to browse through them and see different things to use in my cooking.  I found this mini 4 loaf pan for bread or mini meat loaves.  I passed up purchasing them, but Jon walked over and bought it for me.  He knows me, I am not an impulse buyer and so often I don't buy something and wished I had.  Of course, he has benefited from this purchase as I have made Banana Bread 3 times so far.  We have eaten some, but I have have fun giving these 6 inch mini loaves of bread to neighbors too.  I love doing that!!!
I know I will enjoy this pan in many different ways.

My Mom created this recipe several years ago and it is soooo moist.  You can also make it in a regular bread pan.

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  2                     RIPE BANANAS
  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       C          CHOPPED NUTS

 Sift flower, salt and soda together and set aside,  Mash Bananas with a fork.   Beat eggs , oil, bananas, buttermilk, nuts and vanilla  together.  Add sifted dry ingredients to mixture and stir until well blended.  (I use a fork instead of a mixer,)

Preheat oven at 350 and bake 40 minutes to 1 hour. Stick a knife in the middle.  It should come out clean when done.
