I've been making this recipe for years. The sour cream gives the bread it's moisture. It can be made into muffins or a loaf.

Very good Banana Bread, was not dense or heavy and had great flavor. The bread turned out moist and had the riht amount of sweetness. Definitely a keeper.

What a great recipe! The texture is almost cake-like, as if pastry flour had been used instead of all-purpose; and it couldn't be more moist. A classic; so easy to make. I won't be looking at other banana bread recipes. This one goes into my file.
