    My husband is going through this Lance Armstrong phase. He's riding his bike, reading biographies, ordering wristbands. So, of course, when he found Lance Armstrong's mom's banana bread recipe, I was required to make it. I have to say, it's the best banana bread I've ever had.

    1 stick butter, softened
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    2 mashed bananas
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    2 cups flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

    *Cream the butter, sugar, eggs, bananas, & vanilla.
    * Mix buttermilk with soda. Add to banana mixture.
    * Mix flour & salt. Add gradually to banana mixture.
    * Stir in nuts.
    * Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until center is done.


    I add a whole cup of nuts instead of a half cup, because I really like nuts.

    Hmm suddenly I have a craving for Banana bread! Too bad I don't have a wife to force to make it for me. I might try making it myself lol.

    You started it.

    Love nuts..licking the spoon.

    Look what you did to poor Darin.

    It's your fault.
