Ingredients

    2 large eggs

    1 cup brown sugar

    1/3 cup vegetable oil

    1-1/4 cup mashed banana (3-4 very ripe, large bananas)

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    3/4 teaspoon almond extract

    2-2/3 cup all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1 teaspoon salt

    1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

    1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt

    1/2 cup sliced almonds, optional (calcuated in this recipe)

Tips

My husband and son LOVED this. Its just at 200 calories per slice, so thank goodness I didnt like it, but they are fans, so SCORE! haha


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the eggs, sugar, and oil. Blend in the mashed banana, vanilla, and almond extract. Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk together.

In a small mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix quickly but thoroughly, then gently stir in the sour cream, mixing until just combined.

Pour the batter into a two cooking spray coated 95-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle sliced almonds on top. Bake the bread for about 35 - 50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. If the bread begins to brown too quickly, tent it with foil after 45 minutes in the oven.

When the bread tests done, remove it from the oven and place on a rack for 15 minutes; after 15 minutes, remove the bread from its pan and place on the rack to finish cooling. Slice when it has cooled completely.
