This is the best banana bread I have ever had!! It is so moist, I believe it is due to the over ripe bananas and the sour cream. You must try it!!!

Great recipe, polly. On my next batch though, I'm going to add more banana and a smidgen of banana extract for a little more distinct banana flavour. I made them as muffins and they were done after about 45 minutes. I took about 1/2 of them, along with a stick of butter, to work and left them by the coffee maker. They were gone within an hour.

This bread recipe is excellent! It was indeed very, very moist and has a wonderful flavor. I used really, really over-ripe bananas and I added 1/2 tsp. banana extract. If you make the loaf rather than muffins, allow the bread to cool a bit in the pan first - it smelled so good that I just couldn't wait for it to cool. When I tried to take the still warm loaf out of the pan, it split in half because it is so tender. We dug in anyway - and is was delicious! A real keeper.
