I tried a ton of banana bread recipes, found one I liked and made it even better - this is a prize winning recipe!


Sift the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and baking powder into a large bowl and stir.
In a separate bowl add the bananas, sour cream, eggs, butter and vanilla and beat until well combined and smooth.
Add the flour mix to the Banana batter a little at a time and mix until well combined. Fold in the nuts if using and pour batter into greased loaf pans and place on center rack of oven.
Bake for 60-70 min. or until bread bounces back in center when touched. Cool in pans for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan and placing on wire rack to cool completely.
