Banana Bread Ingredients

 

Who can resist a deliciously warm slice of banana bread with that perfect pat of butter gently melting across the center and down the sides?  No one over here at my house, that I can promise.  A loaf can hardly cool enough to be eaten before it’s sliced and gone!

This recipe is truly a special one.  And why not?  While regular banana bread is good, a little cinnamon here, chopped nuts there, sour cream for texture and moistness, and coarsely mashed bananas can turn this traditional treat into a hearty bread that’s just loaded down with goodness.  Not to mention toppings!  Oats, a few more nuts… all in the name of slice that you can really sink your teeth into!

This recipe is far too good to keep to yourself.  Make two loaves.  Give one away.  Invite a friend over for coffee.  Spread a little homemade special to brighten someone’s day.

Keyword: banana, bread, pecans
Servings: 5 people
Ingredients
  • 1.5 C brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 C sour cream
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 medium ripe bananas
  • 2.5 C flour, spooned & leveled
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 C chopped pecans, (or walnuts)
Topping
  • 1 Tbsp rolled oats
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp chopped nuts
  • 1 tsp coarse sparkling sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan.

  2. Coarsely mash bananas & set aside. In a small mixing bowl, mix together flour, soda, cinnamon, salt & baking powder. Set aside. In separate small bowl, mix together topping ingredients & set aside.

  3. Using a mixer, cream butter, sugar & sour cream until smooth. Add eggs one a time, mixing one in before adding the next. Add vanilla.

  4. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients a little at a time. When it is all incorporated, add nuts. Add bananas last. Fold in gently so that the bananas stay chunky and don't break down too much.

  5. Pour batter into loaf pan. Top with topping ingredients. Gently pat toppings into batter. Bake in preheated oven for 60-65 minutes. Loosely cover with foil after the first 30 minutes to keep the top from over browning. Bread is done when toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool in loaf pan on a wire rack.

Recipe Notes

The cinnamon in this recipe does give the recipe a browner appearance than other banana bread recipes.
