Mrs. Myers’ Banana Bread

I made a double batch of this and sent one loaf to work with Jenna and took one to a ladies' Bible study.  Everyone liked this. 
Mrs. Myers’ Banana Bread
Yield=2 large loaves

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 cups sifted flour (I never sift)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. table salt
5 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup nuts, optional
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 quart mashed bananas, about 8 (ripe to overripe)

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Butter two loaf pans.

2. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

4. With the mixer on low, add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Add the vanilla, buttermilk and bananas.

5. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Divide batter between the two prepared pans. Bake for approximately 1 hour.

6. Remove from oven and turn loaves out onto cooling rack immediately. Let cool.
