"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Pam & Dennis


3/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 bananas, mashed
2 eggs, well beaten
3/4 c chopped walnuts (optional)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. buttermilk (or a ratio of cup white milk with tablespoon lemon juice in place of buttermilk. Let it sit a few minutes to kind of curdle)

Mix all together and put in 2 loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Also excellent to make into muffins instead- only bake about 15-20 minutes- until done with clean toothpick.
