I have made many banana bread recipes over the years....but this is BY FAR the BEST EVER!!! I think it must be the sour makes it so moist and yummy! I usually triple the recipe so I end up with 6 loaves - my neighbors/friends always want a loaf or two!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream shortening and add sugar gradually, mix in eggs and banana.
  2. In a separate bowl sift the dry ingredients together and add them to the creamed mixture.
  3. Then add the milk, sour cream and vanilla& mix till combined.
  4. Grease 1 bundt pan or 2 bread pans, pour in batter and bake for 1 hour (or until done) at 350°F.

I made mine in a 10 cup bundt pan. Turned out quite nice,the most you will get is 2 medium loaf pans,or 3 small.

Lovely banana flavor. I took Jan T advice and only used 1/4 tsp of baking soda and it came out fine. The sour cream is what gives this loaf its great taste. Will make this again with nut and chocolate chips.

SooooooGood!!! I thought I had a good banana bread recipe,but this is better,very moist and light,must be the sour cream. Not at all difficult to make. Baked it in a Bundt pan(looked a little more fancy)served it plain with some ice cream. My significant other also commented that it was very light. Thanks City Gurl!!!
