A classic... Banana Bread

This banana bread....
I found the perfect recipe.  
On Pinterest.  
But, if someone can kindly point me to the original recipe- I would like to credit the creator.

Banana bread is truly one of my all time favorites...
I eat mine warm from the oven.
For breakfast the next day...
And my favorite way...
It is kinda sinful... 
but very delicious...
With cream cheese or butter on top.

I have a bunch of frozen over ripe bananas in my freezer right now.
In fact, I think I buy bananas just so they can go bad on me and I have an excuse to make more bread.
Smart huh?

Here it is..
My all time favorite recipe...
And the best part- no oil in the recipe.
The moistness comes from buttermilk.
All good things come from buttermilk- trust me....

Have a great week everyone!

Banana Bread

2 cups sugar

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.  Add bananas, vanilla and buttermilk.  
Add flour to wet mixture until just combined.  
Divide among the two prepared pans and bake for approximately one hour.
Cool and enjoy!!
