from Martha Stewart...by way of my friend Becky.
adapted from Martha Stewart
Makes 1 large loaf or 3 or 4 mini loaves
1 stick butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temp
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (about 2)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9X5X3-inch loaf pan or 4 mini loaf pans.
With electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
Sift dry ingredients and combine with butter mixture. Blend well. Add bananas and sour cream; mix well. Stir in nuts and pour into prepared pan.
Bake about 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean (careful not to overbake; start checking early). Turn out onto a rack to cool.
