I don’t like eating overly ripe bananas. Yeah, call me a princess. So instead of trashing them, I made a banana loaf.
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
6 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
2. Grease loaf pan.
3. In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with cinnamon and sugar mixture.
4. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup of sugar. Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix in salt, baking soda and flour.
5. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
**This makes 2 loafs. I only wanted one so I only used half of what the recipe asked for. Hence, instead of one cup, I only added half a cup.
