    1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (3 to 4 medium)
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup chopped nuts, if desired
    1 teaspoon salt

    2. Mix sugar and butter in large bowl. Stir in eggs until well blended. Add bananas, buttermilk and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt just until moistened. Stir in nuts. Pour into pans.

    3. Bake 8-inch loaves about 1 hour, 9-inch loaf about 1 1/4 hours, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of loaves from pans; remove from pans and place top side up on wire rack. Cool completely, about 2 hours, before slicing. Wrap tightly and store at room temperature up to 4 days, or refrigerate up to 10 days.
