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.
This is a tasty banana bread recipe. I've made it using low-fat plain yogurt instead of sour cream since we like that more:) It went well!
