I really enjoy my quiet time when my girls are all sleeping and I have the house to myself for several hours. Yesterday it was laundry and cleaning. This morning, 6 loaves of homemade banana bread. My house smells amazing!
Normally I use pre-mixes when making anything, but I have been getting back into the habit of taking my time cooking things, whether it be dinner, snacks, or desserts. This bread was a hit with my girls; it was super-moist and delicious. I did not have walnuts, and since I did not feel like going to the store at 6am, I used the sliced almonds I had on hand instead. The girls said it was a nice change that made it better!
This is definitely a recipe I will use again, it was super easy, I had everything on hand (yeah, yeah, yeah, except for the walnuts) it was quick and the clean-up was easy. Continue reading here for the recipe
Easy Banana Bread
preheat oven to 350 degrees, and grease a 9×5 loaf pan
1/2 C melted butter
1 C white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 C sour cream
1/2 C walnuts
2 medium bananas, sliced
stir sugar into melted butter, until mixed. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until mixed. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into butter mixture until smooth. Fold in sour cream, walnuts, and bananas. Pour into bread pan, and bake for 60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Note-I did substitute almonds for the walnuts, and I used one large loaf pan and 2 smaller loaf pans for 1 batch of this recipe.
