Our Favorite Banana Bread

Hi friends! It's the middle of January and I thought it's a perfect time to share a comforting recipe!
 Not sure about you, but some weeks we just don't eat all of our bananas....and I hate to toss them. So naturally banana bread is the answer. And you really cannot beat the smell of this baking away on a Saturday morning!
Here is my recipe for our favorite banana bread.
1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1/3 cup buttermilk
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
For topping (optional)
2 TBSP brown sugar
3 TBSP chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 and line a 9x5 loaf pan  with parchment paper.
Sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. set aside.
Beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.
Add the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and mix for one minute more. 
Add the mashed bananas, mixing until just combined.
Add the dry ingredients, mix and add to the prepped loaf pan.
Sprinkle with the brown sugar and walnuts if desired.
I like to line the pan with parchment paper. I find most things do not stick to it and you can easily pull the loaf out of the pan after baking.
Bake at 325 for 55-65 minutes. Use the toothpick method to check for doneness.
It is so moist and tastes amazing warm! You could easily swap out the loaf pan for a muffin tin if you wanted to make muffins.
