  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes our clean, about 60 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

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.
