Linda Armstrong's Banana Nut Bread

From the North  Florida Bicycle Club's publication 'Wheelspeak' October 2008.  Ive saved this page of newsprint that has directions for making the most amazing banana nut bread.  Gather the following kitchen utensils to whip up this hearty bread: Measuring spoons and cups, a blender, spatula, baking pans.

2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups flour
2 mashed bananas
1 cup buttermilk
Oatmeal flakes or chopped walnuts and Cinnamon for garnish

Place butter, sugar, eggs, bananas and vanilla into blender first and mix.  Then add your buttermilk, and baking soda to the banana blend and mix.  Gradually add the flour to the blender, half cup at a time blending between each scoop. 

If you're anything like me, triple check the ingredient list before pouring the batter and adding your garnish.  (Ive goofed and forgot to add the soda once)  This bread bakes perfectly in just about 45-55 minutes.  Check the doneness with a long wooden skewer.     
The only variation to this recipe Ive tried is with substituting the bananas with a 15oz can of pumpkin.       

We are participating in a collective, constructive, and TASTY experiment. As such, you have been invited to be part of a recipe exchange concept. We hope you will participate. We have picked those we think would make this fun. Please send a recipe to the person whose name is in position 1 (even if you don't know him/her) and it should be something quick, easy and without rare ingredients. Actually, the best one is the one you know in your head and can type right now. Don't agonize over it, it is one you make when you are short of time.

After you've sent the recipe to the person in position 1 below and only to that person, copy this letter into a new email, move my name to position 1 and put your name in position 2. Only my and your name should show when you send your email. Send to 20 friends BCC (blind copy). If you cannot do this within 5 days, let us know so it will be fair to those participating. You should receive 36 recipes. It's fun to see where they come from! Seldom does anyone drop out because we all need new ideas. The turnaround is fast as there are only 2 names on the list and you only have to do it once.
