Best-Ever Banana Bread (honestly!) -


Topping6 tablespoons butter
10 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped pecans (or more, toasted)
Batter1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
4 very ripe bananas, mashed (or 1 3/4 c, the bananas have to be so ripe that they're nearly black!)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I add 1 tblsp)
4 tablespoons buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda (I also add 3/4 tsp baking powder)
1 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugar; mash bananas, beat 2 eggs and add to the bananas with vanilla and buttermilk; mix well and add to creamed butter and sugar; sift together flour, soda and salt; add to banana mixture, beat well; pour into 2 greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pans; bake 45 to 50 minutes (I find this bread needs over an hour) or until bread pulls away from sides of pan; add topping.
To prepare Topping: Melt butter in saucepan; add sugar and milk; cook until syrupy (like honey); remove from heat and add chopped pecans; pour over bread spreading to all the corners and place under broiler until bubbly and brown.
Watch closely (this takes around 1 minute- maybe even less!).
