Here’s the recipe for my mom’s amazing banana bread (aka “Nini bread” by my kids).  I usually get about 1 cup of mashed bananas from 2 very ripe bananas.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter at room temperature
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup mashed bananas
1/2 cup of sour cream (the secret ingredient!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts (optional – I usually omit so the kids will eat!)

Cream together first 3 ingredients in a mixer with paddle attachment.  Add mashed bananas and vanilla.  Lightly mix in dry ingredients and sour cream.  Stir in nuts if using.  Bake for 1 hour at 350.
