Pam's Banana Bread

This is the best banana bread recipe I've ever tried. I made a ton of these mini loaves and froze them and took them visiting when I was Relief Society President.
From: Pam Stratford
3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. shortening
3 c. sugar
8 bananas, mashed
4 eggs, well-beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. sifted flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. buttermilk
1 1/2 c. nuts (optional)
Cream the butter and sugar thoroughly. Add the bananas, eggs, and vanilla. Beat well. Sift the baking soda, salt, and flour together. Stir it into the banana mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Add the nuts and mix well. Pour the batter into greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes (keep testing). 45 minutes for small loaf pans. Let the bread cool in the pan 10 minutes before turning it out to a cooling rack.
