- large, very ripe bananas unpeeled
- l small firm banana for garnish
- cups all-purpose flour
- teaspoons baking soda
- teaspoon salt
- cup unsalted butter, at room temperature (soft not melted)
- cups sugar
- teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- large eggs, room temperature
- cup sour cream
4Add butter to the stand mixer bowl and beat until creamy. Add the sugar and beat on medium speed until pale and fluffy (no grainyness remains)
I use a Kitchen Aid stand mixer with a paddle attachment. You can use a hand mixer if you don't have a stand mixer. When mixing the sugar and butter, it is important that you mix it until the grainyness is gone.
9Bake in the oven 65 to 75 minutes. Watch carefully that it doesn't overbrown (add the foil tent if it is browining too fast) Test the center with a thin knife close to the center. Cool cake on a rack 10 minutes before unmolding, then cool to room temperature. Here is what it looks like when it is done! Enjoy!
