This is an incredibly moist and tender Banana Nut Bread. The addition of the instant banana pudding gives it an extra banana "kick". I find baking it at a lower temperature avoids burning the edges. My DH likes it for breakfast served under two eggs over easy.

- 1 cup buttermilk
- 3 large eggs

Delicious Recipe! Thanks for sharing! I have made it the way it is written and also a few times with the twist of changing out the banana pudding for coconut pudding and using coconut milk instead of buttermilk. Yummy both ways! Thanks, again!
This recipe is GREAT! I subbed whole milk and lemon juice mixture for the buttermilk and used only a 3/4 of a cup. It's so moist and so-o good. Thanks for sharing.
Very moist cake. I did not have buittermilk so I used 2% milk. I also used less sugar, added nutmeg and used banana creme pudding because that was all I could find. Cake had a wonderful taste. The only problem I had is I was bringing it to a dance and when I cut it I had a hard time getting decent looking pieces to bring with me. I ended up leaving a lot at home, but that was okay because my husband and I have been enjoying it. Thanks for sharing.
