1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
4 ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter
10 tablespoons brown sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugar. Beat eggs and add to sugar mixture. Add bananas, vanilla, and buttermilk. Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Add to banana mixture. Beat well with a mixer.

Pour into 2 large greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans. (Could use 4-5 small pans or 3 medium pans).

Bake 45 minutes or until bread pulls away from sides of pan or toothpick comes out clean.

For topping: Melt butter in saucepan. Add sugar and milk. Cook until syrupy. Remove from heat and add chopped pecans. Leave bread in the pan and pour hot pecan topping over bread. Place under broiler for 3 to 5 minutes. Watch it closely - can burn easily!

Cool completely and remove from pan.
