None of the above recipes mention cinnamon which I always put in my banana nut bread. I also throw in about a tablespooon of cocoa. Gives it a little extra oomph.

I posted this one here last year. It's from Connie over at Mimi's Cyber-Kitchen.


2/3 cup butter or margarine
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups mashed bananas (about 3)
2-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and bananas and beat until well blended. Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Add alternately with sour cream to banana mixture, stirring just to blend. Stir in nuts. Spoon batter into greased and floured (I just use Pam) loaf pan.
Optional LBake at 350° for 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let stand in pan for at least 10?15 minutes.

Tip: Add 1/2 cup or more rough chopped maraschino cherries to mixture. Wow!
