- ½ cup butter, softened shopping list
- ¼ cup vegetable oil shopping list
- 1 cup white sugar shopping list
- ½ cup brown sugar shopping list
- 2 eggs shopping list
- 1½ cups mashed ripe bananas (I use 3 medium well-ripened bananas) shopping list
- ½ cup sour cream shopping list
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract shopping list
- 2 cups flour shopping list
- 1 teaspoon baking soda shopping list
- ½ teaspoon salt shopping list
- additional brown sugar for top of batter shopping list
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!

This sounds very good, I have some banana's I'm going to have to do something with if they don't get eaten soon. I'll give your recipe a try. Sour Cream usually makes it very moist along with really ripe banana's. Great post.henrie in Savannah loved it
