Banana Bread

I’ve been trying different banana bread recipes for at least 10 years and have never been completely satisfied. When I made this recipe I knew I had a winner! This was confirmed when I took a bunch to a family party and everyone was complimenting me for how good it was and asking me for the recipe. My sister said it was the most delicious banana bread she’s ever had!

One thing I really love about this Moist Banana Bread is that it’s not dry! So many banana bread recipes are too dry and flavorless. I hesitated to call this recipe “moist” because I know there are people who don’t like that word but it is what it is. No other word can replace it! haha And by moist I don’t mean wet, or heavy, I mean it’s not dry and has just the right amount of moisture.

Do you want to know the secret ingredient? It’s sour cream! Just 1/3 cup. It adds even more flavor and richness to this recipe. And if you don’t have any you can substitute Greek yogurt or even buttermilk. (Note- If you use buttermilk just cut that amount down to 1/4 cup.)

How to Make This Banana Bread:

1- Cream together softened butter with granulated and brown sugar. Tip: if you don’t have time to soften the butter this recipe is forgiving and you can put it in the microwave JUST until it’s soft and the bread will still turn out great!

2- Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla extract.

3- Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

4- Gently fold in the flour just until it’s moistened. You don’t want to overmix.

5- Pour into baking loaf pan and bake for 55-65 minutes. Tip: After about 30 minutes cover the banana bread with foil to reduce browning. Also, place the oven rack on the lower third of the oven.

6- Let cool, slice, and enjoy!
