Banana Bread

IMG_0171This is my mother’s recipe, she picked it up from a friend who served this as a dessert at a dinner party accompanied with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It has since been published in several Church Cookbooks and passed around among friends and family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.


2 cups/340g flour

1c/230g sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda/bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp baking powder

2/3 c/157ml vegetable oil

3 large eggs

1/2c/115g sour(ed) cream

1c/270g mashed banana

1c/100g nut of your choice ( I like walnut pieces, though pecan is very good as well)



Cream the oil, egg, and sugar. Add the sour(ed) cream, bananas. Mix in the dry ingredients, adding the nuts last after everything is combined.

The batter will be the consistency of cake batter.

Pour batter into a greased 9inx9in (23cmx23cm), or 2 bread pans and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 170 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes to an hour or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle. I would start checking on it around the 20 minute mark as every oven varies.IMG_0174
