You can stop your search for the world’s best banana bread.

By landing on this post, you have found it, my friends.  This banana bread with sour cream is PERFECT.  Oh. My. Goodness.


Let’s list a few characteristics of the perfect banana bread, shall we?:

  1. Moist.  This is a very moist banana bread, with 3 mashed bananas, sour cream, and a 1/2 cup oil.
  2. Being able to taste the texture of the mashed bananas.  And, check.  There’s something about the mix of the sour cream with the sweet bananas that just works so fabulously well.  Note:  the recipe says to not overmix.  This is key to maintaining the various yummy textures.
  3. Slightly crispy top to balance out the moist banana bread goodness in the core of the loaf.
  4. Easy to whip up in One Bowl, which translates to:  this will be made often in my house.

The combination of mashed ripe bananas and sour cream is to die for.  Not only for making it a moist bread, but also to balance out the sweetness of the bread.  Its a perfectly flavored bread, and my family LOVES it.

A banana bread with sour cream and oil might sound like the greasy factor may be too much.  Not the case here.  It is only a half cup oil, and proves to be the perfect amount to work with the bananas and sour cream for moistness.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
