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.
- 1⁄4 lb butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mashed very ripe banana
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup chopped walnuts or 1⁄2 cup pecans
- Preheat oven to 350°F, butter 9X5X3" loaf pan.
- With an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs beating well.
- Sift the dry ingredients together and combine with the butter mixture. Blend well.
- Add the bananas, sour cream, and vanilla. Stir well.
- Stir in the nuts and pour into the pan.
- Bake 1 hour until a cake tester comes out clean.
- Turn out onto a rack to cool.
I made this for the 2012 Pick A Chef in the Contests forum. This was a good bread, I likhe texture of the bread it was delicious ss well. I have also been informed that I am to make this recipe again for my daughter!!
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.
