This banana bread recipe with sour cream is just wonderful! I know, you're probably thinking, "Oh no! Another banana bread recipe!" But this one is a little different: the sour cream makes this one so moist it melts in your mouth. This one is great for gift giving and holidays. Loaves freeze well.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease four 7x3-inch loaf pans.

  • Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon together in a small bowl until well combined; dust the greased pans lightly with sugar mixture.

  • Beat remaining 3 cups sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add mashed bananas, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, and remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon; continue to beat until well-blended. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix until just combined. Stir in walnuts and divide batter evenly into the prepared pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour.
