Family Tradition: Banana Nut Bread

You have old bananas and need to do something with them as soon as possible before they are no good, what do you do?  Make Banana Nut Bread, of course!  Growing up this was a “tradition” in our family when this occurred and today I got to share that tradition with Waylon.  This recipe can be made in a loaf pan or an 8x8 pan.  

Ingredients needed: 
2 Cups Flour
1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter
2 Eggs, Beaten
1 Cup Bananas, Mashed (About 2 Bananas)
1/4 Cup Buttermilk (We made our own with milk and lemon)
1 Cup of Nuts (if you’d like!)
A few grinds of The Spice & Tea Exchange’s “Bakers Secret Spice Blend” to taste

Cream together the butter & sugar.  Add eggs.  Add the dry ingredients alternately with the bananas & buttermilk.  Fold in nuts.  Bake for around 50 minutes at 350 degrees.  While letting cool, top with Bakers Secret Spice Blend.  Enjoy!
