Banana Bread/Cake

I had this for the first time at Mandy Lloyd's (in the ward) at a superbowl party and fell in love! I'm always looking for a good banana bread recipe and definitely hit the jackpot when I scored this recipe. I made it one day last week and it was gone the very next day. Great way to use up your old bananas and I promise. . . you will LOVE it. Just beware. You can't walk by without taking a slice.


3/4 C butter, softened
2 1/4 C sugar
3 eggs
1 1/4 C mashed bananas
1/3 C sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 C flour
1 1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt
dash of cinnamon

To prepare the bundt cake pan, spray with a cooking spray, then coat the inner edges really well with sugar. This will make a really yummy, sugary, crispy thin outer layer.

Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes


  1. I'm not a big banana fan, but after Marijke's Banana Bread recipe, I might just have to try this one out.

  2. I don't usually like banana bread either, which is why I have always been on the lookout for one I like. (Mary's bananas brown before she eats them all). I will have to try Marijke's too.

  3. i ABSOLUTELY love Marijke's banana bread, my husband at more than half the loaf as soon as it got outof the oven!

  4. Looks so delicious. The people in the South love their banana pudding....maybe this will be a good alternative.

  5. Oops, forgot to include that this recipe calls for flour!!! Recipe updated!

  6. I just made this for tomorrow's interviews and it is awesome!! I added a cup of chopped walnuts because I love them with banana bread/cake.
