Banana Bread

Well I have been making Banana bread for pretty much everyone this past week and thought I would share my recipe with you. So let me know how it turns out for you!


½ cup (1 Stick) butter, at room temp.
1 cup granulated sugar
2 lrg eggs
1½ cups unbleached flour
1 teasp baking soda
1 teasp salt
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
½ cup sour cream
1 teasp vanilla
½ cup chopped walnuts, chocolate chips or pecans (optional)


1. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to incorporate.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour into prepared pan.

3. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
