I added 4 tablespoons of Nestle Toll House cocoa powder, 3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips and I substituted vanilla yogurt for the sour cream. Turned out fabulous!!!!!!!!
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf
pan; set aside. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment,
cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and
salt. Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add
bananas, sour cream, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour
into prepared pan.
Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake
comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10
minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
