This is my husbands favorite sweet food that I make. I took the recipe from my mom but have been making it for years and years. I even made this recipe in front of my college speech class as my "how-to" speech, (which had a short time limit). It is one of my favorites and probably one of the 1st things I ever learned to bake.


  • 1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup coarsely mashed banana (about 2 bananas)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degress and spray 2 med sized baking pans.
  • Stir sour cream and soda together and set aside.
  • Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Beat in vanilla.
  • Then, beat in sour cream mixture.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients until just blended, do not overmix.
  • Bake at 350 for about 40 min or slightly longer.
  • You may want to check the middle with a toothpick to see if it is done.
  • Makes 2 loaves.
