I'm not really sure where I got this recipe from, but I've been using it for years. I think the secret ingredient that makes it so delicious is the sour cream. It adds a tanginess to it, and definitely helps to keep it moist. I use this recipe every time we have a couple of bananas on the counter that no one wants to eat...the riper the better. Simple and delicious - enjoy!
2 T sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ c + 2 T butter
1 ½ c sugar
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
½ container sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt (if using unsalted butter)
1 ½ tsp baking soda
2 ¼ c flour
Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together 2 T sugar + ½ tsp cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with mixture. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar. Mix next 4 ingredients. Mix in remaining ingredients and divide into pans. Bake 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Tips – add crumbled topping; 1/2c brown sugar, 1/2c flour, 2-3 T butter, 1 tsp cinnamon – mix and crumble on top.
