Banana Bread Recipe

We fancy ourselves around here as banana bread connoisseurs (exciting, right? lol), and as many recipes as I’ve tried, this one is by far the best. My husband is addicted, he’ll buy a bunch of bananas and then accidentally let two go a little brown, perfect for banana bread.

What makes this recipe SO good (yet, not so healthy), is the cup of sour cream and two bananas. It’s so moist! We’ll make it on a Sunday and eat it with tea for breakfast throughout the week.

Yields: 1 9×13 loaf


1 cup mashed bananas
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup margarine
1 1/3 cups white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9×13 inch pan, or two 7×3 inch loaf pans.

Combine banana and sour cream. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and banana mixture. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; stir into the banana mixture. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan or pans.

Bake for 50 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.

Your Thoughts?

  • Sounds yummy! I can’t help but think of ways I could try to make this healthier haha Wonder if partial WW flour would work and maybe cut the sugar down? Also I might sub butter/coconut oil for margarine and use greek yogurt in place of sour cream. Trying to stay away from certain things in order to loose this belly fat! ugh lol

      so funny because i thought of you when i wrote the “not so healthy” part and knew you’d see this and come up with some great alternatives. one of my facebook buds wrote this “I made this delish bread the other day – subbed butter for margarine and plain greek yogurt for the sour cream. Also added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. Chris said it was the best Banana Bread I’ve ever made. Thanks for sharing the recipe!”

    Banana bread is my most favorite bread in the world. I never make it because I eat the loaf on one sitting. :/
