Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread

The title really says it all. This has a "praline" like topping and it makes it wonderful! Try it, you'll like it! This is undoubtably my favorite banana bread.

Indescribably Delicious Banana Bread

Topping: for AFTER baking
6 T butter
10 T dark brown sugar
5 T milk
1 C chopped pecans or more if you like!

1 C butter
1 ½ C sugar
2 eggs
4 very ripe bananas
1 t vanilla
4 T buttermilk
2 C flour
1 ½ t baking soda
1 t salt

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar. Mash bananas, beat 2 eggs and add to bananas with vanilla and buttermilk. Mix well and add to creamed butter and sugar. Sift together flour, soda and salt. Add to banana mixture and beat well. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans 9 x 5 x 3

Bake 45 to 50 min until bread pulls away from sides of pan. Cool.

To prepare topping, melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until very syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Pour over bread, spreading to all corners and place under broiler till brown and bubbly. WATCH CLOSELY. DO NOT LET BURN!
