"Esther is right! The sour cream makes this one so moist it melts in your mouth. I make it healthier by using light sour cream, whole wheat flour and less sugar and butter --and you know what? No one can tell the difference!"

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease four 7x3-inch loaf pans.
  2. Stir together 2 tablespoons white sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Dust pans lightly with sugar mixture.
  3. Beat butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Blend in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla extract, and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Whisk together salt, baking soda, all-purpose flour, and whole wheat flour in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined; fold in nuts. Divide into prepared pans.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour.

I just made it exactly to her adjustments, WOW so good! Healthier and tastes as good as the original! I recommend stirring the wet ingredients in with the flour -creates a denser bread :) yum!

Tastes pretty good for healthy bread, however there is way too much cinnamon and it overpowers the banana flavor. This is more like spice cake than banana bread. Ill use the substitutions in a d...

I made this into Muffins. I was in the middle of making this recipe and realized one of my bananas had gone bad. So I used 2 overripe bananas, and 1/2 a cup of applesauce to replace the third. ...

It needs more sugar. It tasted like cardboard at the first bite. I kinda got used to it but the kids did not like it. Even with the cinnamon/sugar sprinkles on the bottom and on the top. I made ...
