Diane's Homemade Banana Bread

2 eggs
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp. good vanilla
1/2 cup oil
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together with mixer the eggs, oil, vanilla, sugar and buttermilk. Add the mashed bananas and blend well. Sift together all dry ingredients except nuts. Stir dry ingredients by hand into creamed mixture until blended, then stir in nuts. Pour into 2 or 3 greased and floured loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks in pans for 10 minutes, then carefully remove from pans and finish cooling on racks. Serve or wrap well for later.

This is the best banana bread I have ever had, bar none. This freezes beautifully if well-wrapped.
