My mom loves making banana bread for people. They love when she makes it too. I had a few visits to make this morning…and a lot of bananas stored in the freezer so I quickly made some bread. I want to post the recipe here so that it is documented one more place so that I am sure to never lose it.


mix together:

  • 2 c bananas
  • 1 c nuts
  • 1 c sour cream

In a separate bowl:

  • 2 c sugar
  • 1 c butter 
  • 4 eggs

add banana mixture to bowl

then add:

  • 3 c flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 2 t salt

mix together well.  

  • add 2 tsp of vanilla

pour into greased and floured loaf pans (about 3 loaves). Bake 45-60 minutes at 350 degrees.

I sometimes add streusel to the center and top before baking.

in a small pot melt:

  • 6 T butter

remove from heat and add:

  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 2 t cinnamon

stir with a fork until mixed well and crumbly texture

and optional…is to add toasted coconut to the crumble

  1. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Carin. Thanks to your Mom for sharing the bread and the recipe. I am going to make some of this on Saturday and share it with some Nicaraguan families at Church.

  2. I am back in the USA now. I spent three months in Texas visiting extended family. Tomorrow, I’m moving into an apartment in Modesto. Construction on a temple will begin there soon. It is good to be close again to Jared, Stacia and their families. Stacia shared with me last week, that she is expecting a baby girl in mid-February.
