I've been in the mood to bake latetly and what perfect timing because friends of my family was so nice to share some bananas from their garden....Thank you Jorge and Kristen!

Here's a recipe that I've had for a actually came with our monthly HELCO electric bill some years back.  Having read the ingredients to include sour cream (WOW, I love sour cream!), it was worth a try...


1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed ripe banans
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan.  In large bowl of electric mixer, cream butter with sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract at high speed for approximately 1 1/2 minutes.  Sift flour with baking soda and salt.  Add flour and remaining ingredients to creamed mixture.  Mix at low speed for about 1/2 minute. Pour into prepared pan.  Bake for one hour.  Recipe makes 1 loaf.

Sorry no in-the-process step-by-step pics for this.  Just didn't think about it at the time but really an easy bread to whip up.  At times, I like to add chocolate chips, raisins and other dried chopped fruit.   Really "ono" (delish) w/ a cup of 100% Kona Coffee.  And here it is:

So moist every single time!  Great for potlucks, and any gatherings....This was a big hit at a recent bake sale for my son's school fundraiser.  Give it a try and let me know how you like it!

Oh, by the way, it freezes well!  I would give it up to two months in the freezer, if it lasts that long!  Enjoy!  This is always a thumbs up!
