Ingredients

    * 1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter, softened

    * 4 tbsp. Sour Cream
    * 1 1/2 cups Flour, all-purpose (white)
    * 1 tsp. Baking Soda
    * 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    * 1.5 cups (2-3) ripe Bananas, mashed (NOTE: Original recipe called for 1 cup and baked a little less, but I usually use more banana and bake it a wee bit longer. The tracker includes the extra bit of banana!)

Directions

1. Grease 9" x 5" loaf pan.
2. Beat together butter and sugar.
3. Add eggs. Mix well.
4. Add sour cream, flour, baking soda, vanilla, and bananas. Mix well.
5. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 - 55 minutes, or until toothpick in center comes out clean.
7. Cool on rack, and wrap in plastic wrap overnight to bring out the moisture in the bread.
8. Makes 1 loaf, cut into 14 slices about 5/8" thick each.
9. Enjoy!

    My husband is really picky about his banana bread and we LOVED this recipe! I make it for all the holidays. It was a big hit for easter rather than a rich, guilt filled dessert! I also had to cok it for about an hour and 10 minutes...exactly...
    Thank you for sharing!!!!

    worst recipe EVER. WAY too sweet. Very greasy. Took over an hour to cook all the way through. This doesn't even taste like banana bread! (or cake as you trying to pass it off as) Very disappointed.
