Holy buttermilk and bananas Batman! My little ones go absolutely CRAZY for Buttermilk Banana Bread! Simple, sweet and oh so good!
It's hard to improve on our fast and easy family-favorite Banana Bread recipe, but this Buttermilk Banana Bread always disappears as fast as I can slice it! Buttermilk and ripe bananas team up for the moistest sweet bread - almost like a banana pound cake, but with a rich buttery crumb. This recipe makes wonderful Buttermilk Banana Muffins too!
This is the perfect banana bread to eat warm from the oven....slice it into thick slices and spread some sweet creamy butter on top. It almost melts in your mouth!
When you have a countertop full of ripe bananas and even a little bit of buttermilk sitting in the fridge, you can have sweet little loaves of this rich and flavorful bread baking in mere minutes. It's the perfect recipe to have your little ones help you with too - they can be mashing bananas and stirring the batter with a big wooden spoon, and they are always so proud to make their own little banana bread treats!
Bonus - it freezes well too! I like to brush a tiny bit of warm maple syrup on top to give it a beautiful glaze when I plan to freeze. Simply wrap each loaf in plastic wrap, wrap in foil, and then place 3 or 4 individual loaves in larger freezer bags before freezing. These will keep well frozen for up to 3 months - if they last that long!
