Aunt Thelma's Banana Bread

Aunt Thelma’s Banana Bread
By: Thelma Albaugh, John Orr’s Aunt

Serves 12
Preparation Time: 1 hour 30 minutes

1 stick of margarine
1 ½ cups sugar
2 eggs
4 tablespoons buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup bananas – coarsely mashed, but not mushy
½ cup ground pecans

Cream margarine, sugar, and eggs together in a large mixing bowl – add buttermilk and vanilla and set aside. In another bowl, sift the dry ingredients together. Add the dry mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with bananas and nuts. Hand stir until well-blended, but be sure not to over-beat the mix.

Bake in a greased 5” x 9” loaf pan at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. It will split slightly at the top. Test with a toothpick for doneness. When done, let stand in the pan for 10-15 minutes. Remove from pan and immediately seal in plastic wrap. Then wrap again with aluminum foil and place in the freezer while it’s still hot. Leave the bread in the freezer for several days or longer. This is what makes the bread so moist!
