Best Banana Nut Bread #Recipe

My grandma made the best banana nut bread ever

She used to make it in a bundt pan~  I think it was because the serving sizes come pre-formed on them and it was the easiest way for her to holler at me not to take the whole thing in one slice…

Best Banana Nut Bread Recipe Ingredients:

Best Banana Bread Ingrients
3c sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 sticks oleo (yes, this recipe is THAT old.  I use butter, real butter.  No margarine for Grandma!)
4 eggs
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c buttermilk (or try this easy buttermilk substitute*)
6 ripe bananas
1c nuts (if desired- I usually desire chopped pecans)

Pour batter into prepared pan(s).  I prefer to use mini-loaf pans.  
Bake until golden brown and the middle is set.  Check every 1/2 hour.  (In my experience, 1 batch of 6 mini loaf pans usually take about an hour whereas the same batch will make a bundt size pan in about an hour and a half…)
Let cool and serve.  
Wrap remaining bread in foil to preserve freshness.
