I used to frequent a cross stitch message board, and Stacie shared her banana bread recipe. I have made this numerous times - always a winner, and always eaten quickly!

This is a pretty good basic banana bread. The cooking time was too long for me though and edges were burnt. I recommend you check it at 50 minutes. Also, no pan size was specified. I first put the batter in my 9x5 pans since that is what I usually use but I could tell they were too big so I transfered it to my 8x4 pans and that was better. I thought the flavor was a little bland, maybe because of the shortening being used vs. butter.

  4. Sift flour with dry ingredients.
  5. Add flour to wet ingredients, alternating with sour cream.
  6. Add nuts.
