  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 chopped pecans optional
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup mashed bananas about 2 ripe
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine first five ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • Combine remaining ingredients in a separate mixing bowl.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the dry ingredients are moist.
  • Pour mixture into a greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Allow bread to cool five minutes in the pan. Remove and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • Store leftover bread in plastic wrap in the refrigerator. Bread will keep for approximately 1 week.
