I ran across this recipe and was intrigued because it uses sour cream in the recipe and I hadn't seen that in a banana bread recipe before. The sour cream made this bread so moist and very delicious!
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon almond extract (vanilla extract works well also)
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
- 3 bananas, smashed
In a large bowl, cream together the melted butter and sugar with a hand mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the butter mixture until smooth. Finally, fold in the sour cream, nuts, and bananas. Spread evenly into the bread pan.
Bake for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool bread in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
