  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter room temperature
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar (160g)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups all purpose flour (240g)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 ripe bananas mashed (approx 1½ cups)


  • Preheat oven to 375℉. Spray loaf pan with baking spray or rub with butter and flour. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream the butter.
  • Add in the sugar and cream the sugar and butter together using medium speed. Will be light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs and buttermilk. Mix until combined.
  • Mash bananas and add into the batter.
  • In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients: flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir to mix. Slowly add to the wet ingredients while mixing.
  • Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes covered with loosely with foil. Remove then continue baking for an additional 30 minutes or until fully cooked, top will be a golden brown. (foil helps to prevent too much browning)
