The Best Moist Banana Bread Recipe
Recipe type: Dessert
  • For Dusting the Pan:
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • For The Banana Bread:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1-1/2 eggs (or you can just add 2 eggs*)
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Grease two loaf pans. (My loaf pans are 8.5x4.5") In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with cinnamon and sugar mixture. It should stick easily with the sides greased.
  3. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar together. Stir in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix in baking soda and flour. Stir in nuts if you are adding them. Divide batter into the two prepared pans.
  4. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
