Buttermilk Banana Bread Recipe

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. I was able to use up my brown bananas and some buttermilk, WIN!

Bananas & Buttermilk – Yum!

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. Itreminds me of a very moist banana pound cake because of the rich, buttery crumb. It is SO good warm with a little butter. Some say it is the BEST banana bread recipe they have ever made. It is definitely a favorite at our house!

You can make muffins or mini loaves with this banana bread recipe, just reduce the baking time. The bread also freezes well. I always like having a loaf in the freezer for a rainy day…or any day!

If you are pondering what to do with the overripe bananas on your counter and the buttermilk in your refrigerator, make this easy quick bread. Your house will fill with a wonderful aroma and you will have a tasty snack or delicious breakfast. Banana bread is ALWAYS a good idea.

    This is my third time using this recipe. Any baked goods with buttermilk is a favorite in our home. Delicious and moist every time. Freezes beautifully! Thank you for sharing.

  2. From a Georgia boy: This is the absolute BEST banana bread recipe I’ve ever tried. Thirty years of trying various recipes, with a usual dry loaf as the result, but NOW I am tasting a moist, delightful loaf every time I use your recipe. Thanks and God Bless!

    p.s. I believe the secret is: the buttermilk.

  3. Haven’t made it yet but olan to. Just an fyi – Ben Starr on youtube said you can add milk to buttermilk when its almost gone. The leave it on the counter for a day or until it thickens. that put infrig. You will never have to buy buttermilk again.

    This is what I call REAL Banana Bread. This recipe is the best. We are so tired of the brown sugar/walnut recipes so I thought I’d try this recipe since I had buttermilk. The crust and sides steal the show. I’m sure I’ll be baking this again this week. Delightful and delicious. Thank you for a great recipe.
