The sour cream makes this very moist and delicious. Sometimes I add chocolate chips for a change-up.

Wow - I'm definitely a fan! I've been baking banana bread since I was a little kid and this is the lightest, fluffiest bread I've ever had! I made mine into muffins, which were perfectly baked in 23 minutes. I would definitely recommend filling muffin cups 2/3 full AT THE MOST because these babies rise like you wouldn't believe! This recipe will definitely be going into my book of favorites!

I love this recipe! Finely diced walnuts or chocolate chips are a great addition.
