How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine sugar with butter and eggs.
  • Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla. You may use sour milk in place of the sour cream by adding 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice to 1 cup milk and let it sit for at least 10 minutes to sour.
  • Sift dry ingredients and add to mixture.
  • Pour into greased and floured 9-inch loaf pan.
  • Bake for about 1 hour, or until a knife inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool for a few minutes before removing from pan, then cool on rack.
  • Once the bread is cooled, wrap in foil and freeze for a couple weeks. Remove from freezer and bring to room temperature to serve. Hmmmm, good! Of course, that's hard to do if only one loaf is made, as it will be eaten quickly.

    Yes, jacque. That's actually what my gramma did. She's put vinegar or lemon juice in milk for a few minutes to let it sour.

    That's funny, mamaclare -- glad your husband and you really liked it. I know what you mean about eating it and eating it -- that's why I usually only make it for the holidays! :)

    This is fantastic! We just got a great deal on a lot of organic bananas, so I went searching for something a bit different. My husband said he prefers my old stand by, which is much more dense. I put butter on it and warm it to eat it, but with this I just eat it and eat it (and can't stop... neither could husband, ahem) Thanks for a great recipe and for a beautiful description.

    Yay, that looks good, we are all banana-fans (except the cat, he loves parmesan-cheese) and I tried a banana bread years ago while living still in Austria, but somehow did not like it really.. now this recipe is well worth of trying it, maybe tomorrow.. thanks for sharing!

    I think the sour cream will make the difference in this banana bread recipe versus others I've tried.

    Killer recipe. I love the "wine" detail, really cool. When I was a kid, around nine, my family moved from suburban England to an island in the West Indies. We ended up on a banana plantation in the mountains. Recipe reminds me of something we used to improvise, because we so so sick of eating plain ripe bananas. We'd use an old cracker tin over an open fire for an oven. My sister and I would gather wild raspberries, boil them up for preserves and eat the bread with that, YUM.

    I've made this! It's moist and delicious. I'm a banana cake/bread foodie aka junkie, always searching for new recipes for the ultimate banana cake. I have a selected few on my list ~ this is one.

    Yes, it's a one-lb pan (some are 8 1/2"). I added that to the instructions - thanks. I usually double the recipe and I use my long skinny pans (sorry I don't know how long they are), but I have also made this in a standard bread loaf pan.

    Do you use a 9" or other size loaf pan for this bread? It looks excellent!
