Buttermilk Banana-Nut Bread

Had a bunch of ripe bananas and did a bit of experimenting today,  The result far exceeded my expectations.  It was as good as I have ever had. 
Makes 4 -8 1/2' by 3 1/2' foil bread pans

3 large or 4 ave Bananas
1 cp Butter, softened
4 eggs
2 2/3 cps Sugar
1 cp Whole Milk
2 tsp Vanilla
4 Tbls Buttermilk Pwd
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 tsp Baking Pwd
4 cps All purpose Flour
1 cp Pecan pieces

preheat oven to 300 degrees

In a large bowl thoroughly stir together dry ingredients EXCEPT sugar.  In a second large bowl cream together bananas, butter, eggs, vanilla, and sugar, using electric beater on low.  Add dry ingredients to sugar mixture a heaping tablespoon at a time while using beater, still on low.  Slowly beat in milk.

Spray bread pans with no-stick spray.  Divide batter evenly between the 4 pans.  Bake for about an hour, until knife inserted in center comes out clean.  Let sit for 1/2 hour before removing from pans.
