  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup chopped nuts

  4. Add beaten eggs, lemon juice, and buttermilk and stir to incorporate.
  5. Stir the banana mash into the wet mixture and mix well.

**To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf 5 minutes before baking time is over. When the toothpick comes out clean, the bread is done. You can also visually check if the bread is done by looking for a nice medium brown color and also checking that the banana bread has pulled away from the edges of the baking pan.
