Pinterest Summer Recipe Challenge: Sour Cream Banana Bread

If you are a Pinterest addict like I am, you'll know that sometimes you pin ideas that you, for all intents and purposes, plan to try at some point. My recipe board, Nyam, is full of those. I decided that this summer, I'm actually going to make use of this board and try these recipes out. My goal is 1-2 recipes per week, and I'm calling it my Pinterest Summer Recipe Challenge. You can find more of my challengers here.
I know, it's been overdone.. Everyone's got their own version of banana bread that is to die for. But, over the last couple years I've learned to give sour cream the respect it deserves in the baking world. So, I gave this banana bread a shot. And I've officially dumped my old recipe and am keeping this one for the recipe book. Ah-may-zing!

You will need:
non-stick cooking spray
< 1/4 c of sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 c softened butter (or 1/2 c Tropical Traditions Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil)
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
3 very ripe bananas
2 c sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 c 1/4 flour

You will do:
1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
2. Spray 2 bread pans with your non stick spray.
3. In a small bowl mix the <1/4c sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Dust both pans with the sugary mix.
4. In a larger bowl, cream butter and remaining sugar together. Add eggs, bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend until well mixed.
Normally I use bananas that are 1/2 a step away from moldy..they are BLACK.
But this time around I used these guys.

5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly incorporate into the banana mixture.
6. Divide batter between your pans.
7. Bake for 50-60 min, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Normally I include a picture of my little helper(s), but today this was done during naptime.. so here's what these two crazy cousins were up to a few minutes before.

  1. The "in process" pics are looking better and better! Nice work! You'll be attending BlogHer Food's conference at this rate! This is my favorite way to use up old bananas -
