Mom's Banana Nut Bread Recipe


  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk (plus an additional Tablespoon)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour one 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and whisk together well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and nuts. Stir into wet mixture and pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


*Use 1/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil to cut down on the fat. Still wonderful.
