Banana bread won in this past week’s voting. I’m excited because I LOVE banana bread!!! :)
This banana bread is so good toasted with melted butter on top! A great way to start your day. This recipe calls for walnuts, but I ran out and used some pecans too.
3 ripe bananas
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped walnut pieces (I only had about 1/4 cup of walnuts when I made this tonight and added 1/2 cup of pecans instead)
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
And if you want a nuttier taste, then add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon or more, of nutmeg.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a 6×9 loaf pan. Peel and mash your bananas.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and sour cream, and whisk until smooth.
Add the cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, mashed bananas, and walnuts to the egg mixture and whisk to combine.
Add the flour and stir in.
Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Remove the loaf and let it cool down for 10 minutes in the pan.
