Banana Almond Quick Bread Recipe

Banana bread always reminds me of my childhood. Whenever we had ripe bananas around, my Mom always made a couple loaves. I never liked it with any kind of nuts when I was a kid, but now I love making different ways, with different ingredients added in. 

I love the almonds and almond extract that's added in this loaf. I  like adding almond into any baked goods. It adds such a wonderful flavor. This bread is best with some butter slathered on top for breakfast or snack! Enjoy!

Cream together the sugar, butter and eggs until combined. Then mix in the buttermilk, almond extract and bananas until combined. After that, mix in the soda, powder and flour until combined. Last, mix in the almonds.

Pour into a greased bread pan and bake for 1 hour, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool then remove from pan.
