Woke up to a snowy day here in Colorado and 3 Rotten Bananas! There is always something to do with these brown babies so don’t throw them in the garbage please. This is an easy recipe and you’ll only need a few staple items plus sour cream, eggs and butter if you don’t already have these items in the house. The nuts are totally optional . If you don’t want to eat it right away you can make the bread and freeze it for another time. I actually always want to taste it after cooking so I cut bread loaf in 1/2 and took out a few slices and then I freeze the 2 halves.
This is what I did.
1 stick unsalted butter – softened– you can soften in microwave but I don’t melt it
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup mashed bananas — I used 3 smallish bananas
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts if you like the nuts
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 inch loaf pan or 3 small ones. I used Cooking Spray like Bakers Aid or Pam.
I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer and creamed the butter with sugar until light and fluffy , Add the beaten eggs and mix well. I used the low setting and the Paddle Attachment.
In a large bowl , whisk the flour, baking soda and salt; then combine with the butter mixture on a low-speed add in the flour mixture.
Add the sour cream, bananas and vanilla and mix well till combined. Do not over-mix just mix till all combined. Scrape sides of bowl.
Pour 3/4 full of batter into the loaf pan and bake for 50 minutes. I used a cake tester and it came out clean after 50 minutes. If cake tester still has batter watch it and take out in 5 minute intervals till tester comes out clean.
Allow to cool and turn out onto plate .
Amazingly Delicious for those of you who love a good Banana Bread!
