HOMEMADE BANANA BREAD!! Yep, when it's cold out I love to bake! I was so happy this morning when I let the dog out, I looked at the temp and it was 14 degrees!! I then looked on the counter where the 2 rotten bananas were (okay...we'll call them over ripe ) and I said with a grin...today is the day!!
The recipe I used came from The Ashtabula County Master Gardeners Cookbook. I have never used one that called for sour cream and I have to say...it turned out super! Very moist and delicious...fell right out of the pan too! It will now be my "go to recipe" for Banana Bread. What was that???? You wanna make some too?..well I won't leave ya hangin any longer..here's the recipe:
HOMEMADE NORTH CAROLINA BANANA BREAD FROM AN OHIO RECIPE!

1 lg. egg
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour

1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Add bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined. Stir in nuts if you wish. Pour batter into greased pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in pan. Invert and cool completely. Slice and enjoy!!
YUMMY AND DELICIOUS! I had to cut a piece while it was still warm though! I highly recommemded it! Have a great day and stay warm!
P.S. From previous experience ..... If you do make this be prepared to hear " what kind of candle are you burning??" Apparently candles get burned more often than homemade goodies come out of the oven. Just be prepared to show the evidence to prove that the smell throughout the house is indeed authentic!! LOL!.....true story though ;)
