- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped nuts, if desired
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottoms only of 2 loaf pans.
- Mix sugar and margarine in large bowl. Stir in eggs until thoroughly blended.
- Add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- Stir in flour, baking soda and salt just until moistened. Stir in nuts.
- Pour into pans. Bake 8-inch loaves about 1 hour, 9-inch loaf an hour and a half.
