Vanilla - 1 and 1/2 teaspoons.

Put in the sifted baking soda, salt and flour and then add the buttermilk. At this point you can add in the nuts if you have chosen to use them or any other additions.

Empty the contents into 2 greased loaf pans but leave about an inch gap from the top of the pans to allow the bread room to rise. Bake for an hour and 20 minutes on 325 degrees.

This bread has the advantage of being very nutritious and doesn't have the refined carbs that white bread has. There are a number of recipes for banana bread out there that make very good use of over-ripe and ready to throw away bananas.
