Moist and delicious loaded with banana flavour. This recipe for Best Banana Bread will not disappoint, so quick and easy to make.
It was time to do something with the over-ripe bananas I had in my kitchen creating an overwhelming ripe banana scent. I've tried many banana bread recipes over the years but always come back to this old-time favourite. My Best Banana Bread recipe makes two loaves or one cake size one. I occasionally use my square bundt pan to make a decorative loaf . This quick and easy recipe will have you enjoying fresh from the oven banana bread in no time!
Don't you just love when recipes call for 3-4 bananas instead of how many cups. Seriously have you looked at the varying sizes of bananas. What is a medium banana? Is there a standard measurement for what is a small, medium or large banana? I've got you covered, I used 3 cups of bananas in this recipe. The sour cream added to the recipe makes for a moist banana bread. You can also substitute full fat greek yogurt.
