Joan's PERFECT Banana Bread Recipe

We were talking LUNCH on Between You and Me last week...Deb called in and remembered her elementary school lunch in Park Rapids and the perfect banana bread they served.  She's been trying to replicate it ever since!  Joan Downham was pretty sure SHE could help, and sent in this recipe:
Here is the recipe of Shelly's superior banana bread. I think it is similar to the type that the gal described on Between You and Me today.

Cream 3/4 cup butter
Add and blend in 1 1/2 cup sugar and 3-4 mashed bananas (3-4), 2 eggs , 1tsp vanilla
sift 2 cups flour and add 1 tsp soda and 1tsp salt.
...Alernate adding the flour mixture and 1/2 cup buttermilk(I use the powdered butterilk in a can) to the butter/sugar mixture just until well combined.
fold in 1/2 walnuts.
pour in 9x5" greased and parchment lined bottom bread pan and bake 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hour. You can put it in two smaller bread pans and bake for 1 hour
