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:
1 c. sugar
1 stick butter or marg.
1 lg. egg
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 or 2 very ripe (aka rotten) bananas
1/2 c sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Grease bread pan. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in egg. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture. Mix until just combined. 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 ;)

I don't know if I'd be able to let it cool all 10 minutes in the pan before starting to nibble on it (just to make sure it came out allright)...!!! Sure looks good, and thanks for the recipe!

P.S. It's 70 here today and the sun is blazing as usual...


I just copied your recipe ..it sounds delish and "rotten" bananas are a specialty around here. Loved your "stolen" cupboard story...well loved the ending I should say. Going to go read some more..great blog!! Judy

Yum! Your bread looks good. When our oldest daughter was younger my great aunt always gave her banana bread for her birthday! That was her gift from Aunt Marion. And she loved it! I'll have to copy your recipe and make some for her.

I love your shop, and the cupboard story was hilarious!
Yes, we Ohio girls know how to dress. hahaha!
