Buttermilk Banana Bread with Vanilla-Almond Glaze
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 average sized bananas, mashed. (extra ripened for more banana flavor)
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract (I used homemade vanilla extract)
1- 1/2 cup self-rising flour
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Mix well. Slowly add flour to banana mixture. Mix until well combined.
Pour batter into a greased and floured 1.5 qt loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 – 55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
*pan size I used; 5.25 x 9 x 2.75 *
*Tip: Pour the glaze recipe over a warm bread, not hot. Very Important!*
