Buttermilk Banana Bread Recipe

Our family loves banana bread! It’s great for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. This recipe for Buttermilk Banana Bread is so easy, yet produces a high yield of servings with very little effort.

This banana bread recipe was created by accident. One day, I was cleaning out my freezer and noticed I had quite a few frozen bananas in there that needed to be used. I started with my usual recipe for banana bread and decided to start experimenting and changing up the ingredients.

When baking with buttermilk, I generally never use an entire container of it. So, this particular day I had buttermilk on hand from another recipe I made and added it to the banana bread batter, hoping for good results. While I was at it, I also threw in a little extra sugar and some cinnamon to add another level of flavor to the recipe.

It was an instant hit with my daughter and I but the real test was serving it to my husband. Banana bread is such a comfort food and he gets a little nervous when I mess with what he deems perfection, but he deemed the changes a success! This has become my new go to recipe for banana bread…when I have extra buttermilk on hand, of course! Enjoy!
