A New Favorite


 
This is our new favorite banana bread recipe.
I found it on the Martha Stewart website.
It's quick and easy to make and the addition of sour cream makes it nice and moist. Makes 1 loaf.

Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to incorporate.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
