So there I was again, an abundance of over ripe bananas sitting on the kitchen countertop. Banana bread would be made tomorrow I thought. The banana bread recipe we use in our family is good, not great, but good. 

I set out to find a recipe with sour cream, because, well sour cream makes everything better. I found one that claimed to be the best and and it did include sour cream. So I went for it. And yes it was amazing. SOOO moist. If something is moist I am in love. Moist baked goods are the best. The moisture level and can make or break a recipe. 

Anyways, Yes I will make this every time I want banana bread. And I do look forward to making a peanut butter version, chocolate version, biscoff.. you get the point. 🙂 Anyways this was a one bowl, five minute kind of recipe so get to it!

  1. It was delicious. Especially the crispy layer of sugar on the top and the level of moisture on the inside was heavenly. I don't know if it was the recipe or the chef that made a difference…

    1. I absolutely love it!! Best Banana Bread ever! I am looking into making one with greek yogurt instead of the sour cream next time- trying to be healthy. We’ll see how long that last 😉
