  • In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and margarine until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla.

  • In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Blend this mixture into the egg mixture, alternately with the buttermilk; stir just to combine. Fold in the mashed bananas; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes our clean, about 60 minutes.

This recipe is super moist and has great banana taste. To add more flavor to all my banana bread recipes, I add 1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice with the dry ingredients. As a great topping I also mix up 1/4 c. oatmeal, 1/4 c. soft butter, 1 tsp. cinn. and 1/4 c. brown sugar and crumble on top of the recipe before cooking. The topping adds an extra touch and always gets a compliment. Like the other comment, I only use this recipe in loaf pans. Read More

I like the buttermilk but way too much sugar. Tastes like sugar bread. But like it says if you like a sweet bread this one's for you. Me personally I like my banana bread to taste like bananas. Read More

This is the best banana bread I have ever had. I made it and took it to work everyone wanted the recipe. Freezes really well too though you probably won't have any left to freeze! Read More

This is the ultimate banana bread recipe! I make it for all different groups of people and everyone loves it! I modify the recipe slightly, though, by using 2 loaf pans instead of a 9x13. Temperature and cook time stay the same. My favorite part about this recipe? It always comes out perfect! Read More

This bread is AWESOME!! My kids (7 & 3) made this yesterday. Used the 9 x 13 pan as suggested and 1/2 of it gone already! I only made 1/2 the batter and did not have buttermilk but substituted 1cup milk and 1tbs vinegar (stirred and let sit for 10min) then used what was needed for the recipe. So moist and full of banana flavor!! This is a keeper!! Thanks Read More

great way to use up black bananas and buttermilk. Subbed the oleo for 3/4 cup applesauce and it was super moist. Did up the salt to 1/2 tsp. and cut the sugar down to 2 1/2 cups and it was plenty sweet. Added 1 tsp. cinnamon to enhance the flavor. Thanks for a great recipe that can be made into a lowfat bread without compromise of flavor or texture! This made 2 loaves and 2 mini loaves. Read More

This makes wonderfully moist flavorful bread! My family loves it so much that they will let the bananas go brown just so I have to make it. It does make alot 2 loaves and 2 mini loaves. If i don't have buttermilk I just add 1 tsp of vinager to the milk. I also cut the sugar down to 2.5 cups. Everyone is always asking for this recipe! Thanks! Read More

I've made this one many times and it always turns out great. It's the best tasting recipe for banana bread!! I've also had to substitute regular milk for the buttermilk since I don't always have it on hand. Read More
