Recipe by No MSG!
I've had some very blah banana breads, but this one is wonderful. My husband found this one to use one day when we had a bunch of bananas that weren't getting any younger. My co-workers loved it recently when I made it for a breakfast at work. This is from a cookbook called "America's Best Recipes". In the book, the recipe is called "Banana, Sour Cream and Walnut Loaf".

I was a little worried at first because the batter baked over the pan and into my oven. Next time I will split the batter into two loaf pans or make sure I have a cookie sheet under the loaf pan. The aluminum foil helped a lot and the edges did not burn. This banana bread is wonderful! The top is nice and golden brown with a bit of crunch. A very moist bread with just a hint of walnut flavor. For us, this is the perfect banana bread! Thank you No MSG for posting this great recipe!
