I am always trying to find new uses for brown bananas and buttermilk. I always seem to have an abundance of these two ingredients. Josh doesn’t like bananas, but I still buy them in large bunches. I have good intentions to eat them, but they always turn on me too quickly. I also buy the large container of buttermilk because it is a better deal. I usually use the little bit I bought it for and wait until it is about to expire, then everything we eat involves buttermilk. Last week I was thinking of ways to use up bananas and buttermilk and decided to bake Buttermilk Banana Bread.
Buttermilk and bananas are meant to be friends. They team up in this recipe to create a very moist loaf of bread. This banana bread is light in flavor and color. It reminds me of a very moist banana pound cake because of the rich, buttery crumb. I made a medium size loaf and a mini loaf. We sampled the mini loaf and gave away the large loaf to our friends. I knew we would want to sample it, so I figured it would be better to have our own loaf than to give away a loaf with a few missing slices:)
If you are pondering what to do with the overripe bananas on your counter and the buttermilk in your refrigerator, make Buttermilk Banana Bread. Your house will fill with a wonderful aroma and you will have a tasty snack or breakfast to eat.
