Whole Wheat Banana Bread

We awoke to thunder and heavy rain with darkness all around us.  A cozy Sunday morning with hubby and the boys.  Somehow, this dreary to some....lovely to me,  morning gave way to rumbling tummies.  Non-stop cries of "I'm Hungry!"   I look around and see those bananas that nobody wants..that have sat on the counter a day too long.  While they look bad on the outside...the inside is full of Deliciousness just waiting to be created and eaten!  Here is what became of those bananas on dark, rainy Sunday morning in Florida.  

Whole Wheat Banana Bread


3 ripe bananas, smashed or pureed
2 large eggs
1 1/4-1 1/2 cup Buttermilk
1 stick of margarine/butter
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

loaf pan, greased

Preheat oven to 325 degrees


Cream butter/margarine and sugars.  
Beat in the eggs.  
Add pureed, or smashed, bananas 
Add vanilla.
Mix flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
I didn't have buttermilk so, I added 2 tablespoons lemon juice, or use vinegar, to 1 1/2 cups whole milk.  Stir and let sit for 5 minutes or until it starts to curdle 
Using a spatula, alternate the flour and milk.  Ending with milk.  You may not have to use all.  I used 1 1/4 cup today.
Put in grease loaf pan and bake at 325 degrees for 40-50 minutes.
I turn the pan around at 20 minutes.  Then checked again in another 30 minutes.  Mine cooked for 45 minutes.
Done when toothpick comes out clean. 
Very Dense and Oh So Good!
As always, my oven cooks different from yours so adjust times accordingly.
