Way back in June, we posted our Best Banana Bread recipe, minus finished product pictures. Some unfortunate circumstances (a.k.a. hungry boys) led to a shocking lack of pictures.
The other day we decided to make a loaf of banana bread and we realized that it would be the perfect time to re-do the post. So here’s the same delicious, amazing recipe with pictures!
2 sticks butter
1 and a 1/2 cups +2 Tablespoons sugar
3-4 mashed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups + 2 Tablespoons flour
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 and a 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 and a 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cup chopped walnuts or mini chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350*. Grease and flour bundt pan or two loaf pans.
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at at time, beating for a few seconds after each addition. Add mashed bananas and beat. Add vanilla and mix well.
Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add dry ingredients and sour cream alternately to the mixing bowl. Beat well until all combined. Add chopped nuts or mini chocolate chips, if desired.
Pour into bundt pan or loaf pans and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes for bundt pan, and 1 hour for loaf pans, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Invert on a cooling rack and allow bread to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
