Default Re: Best banana bread recipe

Here is my wife's recipe. Never had better!


▢ 1 stick butter
▢ 1 ⅓ cups granulated sugar
▢ 2 eggs
▢ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
▢ 1 cup sour cream
▢ 2 cups all-purpose flour
▢ 1 teaspoon baking powder
▢ 1 teaspoon baking soda
▢ teaspoon salt
▢ 1 cup ripe bananas (mashed)
▢ 1 cup chocolate chips

Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


Preheat oven to 325F. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Then mix in eggs, vanilla and sour cream.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and stir until combined. Fold in bananas and chocolate chips.
Pour into 2 (84") loaf pans and bake for 55 minutes. If using a 95" pan, you can put the batter into one pan, but you will need to cook 10-15 minutes longer. You want the bread to be lightly browned. If it's browning too fast, cover lightly with foil. Remove from oven once a toothpick comes clean.
Once the bread is slightly cooled, remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Slice and enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
