Monday's with Mom.....Betty Crocker banana bread recipe

This is a very basic, very classic banana bread recipe from Betty Crocker. Moist and delicious! My mom's favorite cook book was Betty Crocker and she made this quite often.

 The cookbook was well worn and always laying out on the kitchen table. She grabbed it often for basic recipes like biscuits, cakes, and pies. Can't remember how long to cook the turkey? Look it up in Betty Crocker. Need a cake to bring to church? Betty Crocker's chocolate cake recipe would be perfect!

When I had my bridal shower, guess what my mom gave me? 

Why a Betty Crocker cookbook of course!

 Banana Bread

cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
cups mashed  ripe bananas (3 to 4)
cup buttermilk
       1 1/4 c. sugar
teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2
