This is an old depression era recipe.

2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup mashed ripe banana
1 cup chopped peanuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch loaf pan and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Stir in the egg, buttermilk, peanut butter and banana. Mix well to combine all ingredients. Stir in nuts, if desired. Pour into the prepared loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
