how to make delicious Banana Bread

                                                       Banana Bread

3 ripe      bananas
1/2 cup   soft butter
1/2 cup   white sugar
  1/2 cup   packed brown sugar
4             eggs
1/2 cup   buttermilk
1 tsp       vanilla
2 cups    all-purpose flour
1 tsp       salt
2 tsp       baking power
2 tsp       baking soda
2 tsp       cinnamon
1/2 cup   chopped walnuts

1 sliced   banana
1/4 cup    chopped walnuts

In a large bowl peel the bananas and break them into small pieces. Use a potato masher and mash the bananas. Set aside.  
In a separate bowl cream the soft butter, white sugar and brown sugar all together with a wooden spoon. Add in the beaten eggs and mix till smooth. Add in the buttermilk and vanilla.
 Continue to mix together till well combined. Add in the mashed bananas, then mix. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
 Using a wire whisk mix together. Pour the flour mixture into the liquid. Mix together till just combined. Fold in the chopped walnuts. Pour batter into a well greased 9x 5 loaf pan.
Peel a banana and slice into pieces. Place the banana slice down the middle of the loaf. Top the banana slices with chopped walnuts. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 55 - 60 minutes.
 If you place a thermometer into the center of the loaf it should register between 180 to 185 degrees or until a skewer inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Allow the banana bread to sit for 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool on a wire rake.
