Banana Bread to rival Grandma's





I thought Grandma's Banana Bread was the best I'd ever had. That was until I made Grandma's sister's banana bread. That's right. Great Aunt Eddie has her own recipe that is fantastic. Sorry Grandma. The best word I can use to describe it is light. I think because it uses less eggs, and 3 Tablespoons of sour cream. Sour cream makes everything better and softer. My favorite pancakes and my favorite sugar cookie recipes call for sour cream.

Aunt Eddie's Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
3 bananas, mashed
3 Tbsp. sour cream
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
dash of salt
1 cup chopped nuts (My family uses walnuts, I never put nuts in my bread)

(She says to mix by hand-I don't) Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg, bananas, and sour cream. Combine dry ingredients and add to first mixture. Fold in nuts. Pour into large loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
