Ingredients

How to make it

  • Mix together butter, oil, sugars and eggs.
  • Add mashed bananas, sour cream and vanilla, stirring together well.
  • Mix in flour, baking soda and salt, stirring until it is well blended.
  • Pour into 1 greased large loaf pan or 3 small loaf pans (I always use 3 of the 7 3/8 x 3 5/8 inch loaf pans - I think it gives the best results).
  • Sprinkle additional brown sugar generously over top of batter, using your hand to gently pat some of it into the batter.
  • Bake at 325 degrees: large loaf pan for about 1 hour, smaller loaves for about 45 minutes.
  • Allow bread to cool in pans for about 20 minutes, then run a sharp knife around the edges, tap the pan on the counter several times to release the bread from the bottom of the pan, then invert pan over a wire rack and let the bread fall onto the rack to finish cooling completely.
  • Variations and Suggestions: Add any of the following – miniature chocolate chips, toffee bits, shredded coconut, chopped pecans or macadamia nuts.
  • Try toasting your banana bread – spread hot toasted bread with butter and even add a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar and some slices of banana, or top with a combination of honey and peanut butter, or spread hot toasted bread with some Nutella…the possibilities are endless!
  • Use slices of banana bread to make your French toast. Just dust the finished product with some powdered sugar, or a little powdered sugar glaze, or spread on some Nutella, and maple syrup is good on it, too…you’ve gotta try it!
3 small loaves - you will see how the center tends to fall in, creating a ridge of brown sugar when you cut the slices!   Close

    Wonderful banana bread. I added ground nuts to the batter,
    and sprinkled nuts on top with the brown sugar.
    Compliments all the way around.

    The most flavorful banana bread I've ever had. I added extra brown sugar and walnuts to the batter and put a combo of walnuts, sugar and brown sugar on top. Loved the crunchy top with the creamy bread. YUMMMMM!!

    I used my flour substitute to make it gluten free. I also had no sour cream but used vanilla organic yogurt in it's place. All I have to say is that all the muffins were gone after being out of the oven for only 20 minutes. I used the remaining loaf to make banana bread french toast in the morning.....so good!!!!

    I made this last night. It is delicious. I think it tastes a little more like sugar than banana, but it is a keeper!

    didn't have any sour cream on hand, but I did have plain yoghurt. I can't imagine there's that much difference. I'm trying it now, as I type this, it's in the oven. Oh, and I added chopped macadamia nuts
