This banana bread comes out so moist and delicious that you can't help but serve yourself a second helping. The only thing I would do differently is add more cinnamon next time. It's hard to go wrong with extra cinnamon! ;)

Buttermilk Cinnamon Banana Bread
2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tsp, baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter, room temperature
1/4 cup vegtable/canola oil
1 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 ripe bananas

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter loaf pan or spray with cooking spray.
2. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, beat together the oil, butter, and sugar for a few seconds. Mixture will be a pale color, not fluffy.
4. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add vanilla extract and buttermilk.
5. Add the flour mixture by hand in two additions and mix with wooden spoon. Don't overmix!
6. Mash ripe bananas really well in seperate bowl and add the cinnamon.
7. Stir in mashed banana/cinnamon mixture.
8. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
