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.

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.
