There are probably a 100 million banana bread recipes out there that are ALL good, but I have to share yet another yummy one I happened to make! In some random google search I came across this recipe and boy am I glad I did!
Tip: I used 2 - 8" loaf pans with perfect results. You can also add 1 cup of toasted pecans if you wish.
1 Cup Butter, softened
2 Cups Sugar
3 Cups Flour
2 Tsp Baking Soda
2 Tsp Salt
2 Cups Banana, mashed (approximately 5 bananas)
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 Cup Sour Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease loaf pans. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt (and pecans if desired) together in bowl - set aside. In separate bowl, mash bananas - add sour cream and vanilla until combined. With stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (3-5 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time. While mixer is running, add banana mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in flour mixture by hand - making sure any batter on the bottom of the bowl is well incorporated. Pour batter into prepared bans and bake for approximately 45-60 minutes. Bread will be golden brown, with toothpick coming clean from the center. Let bread cool for 20 minutes in pan before turning on wire racks to finish cooling.
