Banana Bread’s Secret

I’m not a banana fan in the least. Don’t like the taste, the texture and certainty not what they do to my kids! However, mix them up in a delicious bread and my mind completely changes. The sour cream in this recipe makes the bread super moist and I am always caught sneaking a second piece!

3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sour cream
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp salt
1-2 cups chocolate chips, optional


In a medium sized bowl mix together bananas and sour cream. Set aside.

In large bowl cream butter and sugars until smooth.

Beat in eggs and vanilla.

Stir in banana/sour cream mixture.

In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients then add to banana mixture.

Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into two greased 7×3 inch loaf pans or one 9×13 pan.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 5 minutes. Then turn oven down to 350 degrees and bake an additional 45 minutes. * this will help to prevent the top from getting too dark*

Bread is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
