Buttermilk Banana Bread

My boys' friends beg me to bake this bread.  

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
Start with a large bowl and add:
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
Whisk together and set aside.

In a medium bowl combine:
1 1/8 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 Tbsp. buttermilk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
When mixed well add:
3 bananas, mashed
Now add wet ingredients to flour mixture.
Stir well to combine but do not over mix.
Pour into large loaf pan sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 55 minutes to an hour.

It is barely out of the oven and we are cutting it, slathering steaming slices
with softened butter and silently savoring each bite.

*I always double this recipe and bake two loaves.  It disappears that fast!
