Went on a road trip last Saturday.  Visited a few antique stores then drove  down the coast of Maine. It was a beautiful day, while shopping at the antique store I purchased yet another cookbook.  I found this recipe for Grammy's Banana Muffins.   I had to make them on Sunday and really glad I did.  The taste is very simular to a slice of good banana bread but these are in muffin form.  Kitchen smelled wonderful with the aroma of banana's while baking.  They are easy to put together and in a short time you have fresh, hot muffins.  They puffed up and were beautiful.  Plus my favorite ingredient to bake with buttermilk.  Got 12 muffins.

2 cups flour
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed banana
1 egg
1/2 cup of chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans

Mix the dry ingredients, then blend in the softened butter. In another bowl add the buttermilk, vanilla, banana, and egg and mix. Combine the dry with the wet ingredients and mix just enough to combine the two mixture. Fold in the chopped nuts. Line your 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners. Scoop the batter among the 12 muffin cups. the batter was close to the top of each muffin cup. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.
