Why I Love This Recipe

My college roommate Michelle passed along this recipe, and I use it a few times a month when we have bananas which are past their prime in the house. It's excellent hot and buttered.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup of sour cream
1 tsp baking soda
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 bananas, mashed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 9x5" loaf pan.

Combine sour cream and baking soda in a small bowl.

Cream butter and sugar in a separate bowl.

Beat in eggs, bananas, and sour cream mixture.

Sift in flour and baking powder and add nuts if using.

Spoon mixture into prepared pan and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Bake until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top of the loaf is golden brown, about 1 hour.

Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
