Grandma's Banana Bread

So I am that person... I buy banana's with every intention of eating "healthy"...      Needless to say they usually just occupy the fruit bowl until they are brown and only bread worthy, and that's not a bad thing, once you try this bread you will agree!  There is no formal written recipe it's one of those things that I have always known, I will do my best!

Grandma's Banana Bread

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3-4 very ripe banana's
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 tbs sour cream or yogurt
  • cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and a little salt
  • nuts if desired

Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla.  In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.  Mix together smashed banana's, eggs and sour cream, whip them a bit until they are fluffy. Combine all ingredients together bake in a greased bread pan at 350 until center is just done, cool on wire rack.  Makes two loaves.

This bread makes excellent french toast!! 

Let me know what you think! Enjoy!
