I had to add the word beautiful to the title of this post because this banana bread is not just basic but it is beautiful outside the tummy and inside. I have always found that plain banana bread recipes are hard to come across and even harder to make! WE ARE IN LUCK!! I attempted ANOTHER banana bread recipe and I must say, YUMMMMMM!! It makes a huge bundt loaf so freezing part of it will be in your best interest! Let me know if you love this as much as I do! (I am going on day 4 of eating this for breakfast every morning!)
2 sticks Butter
1-1/2 cup + 2 TBLS Sugar
3 whole Eggs
1-1/2 cup Mashed Ripe Bananas
4 cups + 2 TBLS Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1-1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1-1/2 cup Sour Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour bundt pan!! (This is important because if you have never made bread, it sticks and is a pain to clean up!)
Peel and mash about 4 banana's. Set aside.
Cream together sugar and butter in a separate bowl. Take eggs and add them one at a time to sugar/butter mixture. Once all eggs are mixed in, add mashed bananas and mix until blended.
In a LARGE mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and baking powder.
Add banana mixture and sour cream in an alternating pattern. I did 1/2 the banana mixture, 1/2 sour cream, repeat. (I also learned that having a stand alone mixer would have been awesome at this point. At least I am toning my arms while baking!!)
Pour the MASSIVE mixture into the bundt pan. Bake for 70 mins BUT cover the top of the bread around 30-40 mins. This will allow you to have a golden top and not burnt!
Take banana bread out of the oven and invert onto a cooling rack. Let the bread cool off before serving or in my case INHALING!
