First of all, I have to say, that I don't really care much for banana bread. I don't really like banana's. I have to be in the right mood to eat them. My sister made this bread and asked me try it, and it was AMAZING! I can't really taste the banana's, and it is very moist and crumbly. It reminds me more of a pound cake! Oh, it's so good! This is my new recipe for banana bread!
Sour Cream Banana Bread
1 cup Margarine
1 & 1/2 cup sugar
1 & 1/2 cup mashed bananas
4 cups + 2 Tbsp. flour
1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 & 1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup walnuts chopped (optional)
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat. Add bananas and beat. Mix dry ingredients together in a small bowl and add to the creamed mixture. Add sour cream, beat until smooth, stir in nuts. Pour batter into 2 large greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. To test for doneness insert a sharp knife into the center of the bread. If it comes out clean the bread is done.
This bread is very moist and freezes well.
