This is the best banana bread ever. The sour cream really gives it something extra. Once you use this recipe you will throw out all your other banana bread recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease four 7x3 inch loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and 3 cups sugar. Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix in salt, baking soda and flour. Stir in nuts. Divide into prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. I know four loaves is a lot, but remember you can freeze this.

So easy and so moist. We have made it twice and it turned out great both times. Made for I recommend.

So moist and so delicious!! I reduced the recipe to make 3 loaves (I only had 4 banana's), which resulted in two 9X5 loaves. I also used low fat sour cream and egg beaters for the eggs. I don't think the substitutions made one bit of difference. You would never know that this was low fat! The recipe was so easy. This is probably the best banana bread I have tried! This will be my go-to recipe from now on. Thank you for sharing!

Wonderful recipe! As previous reviewers said, it's easy and delicious! I got three loaves: two 8x4 and one 9x5, and they all popped out of the pan so easily! I use a product alled Wilton Cake Release, and my pans are Chicago Metallic, which I have found are so much better than the sort of pan you buy at Wal-Mart, for example. This is definately going to be my go-to banana bread loaf now! I loved the topping, too - it gave the top such a lovely crunch. Thanks so much for posting, Seesko!
