Banana Bread

Annelise Friedman


This is by far my all-time favorite banana bread recipe. This produces a deliciously moist and flavorful loaf of banana bread.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

A fantastic recipe for banana bread. Sour cream makes a tender bread. Full of banana and buttery flavor, we like the crunch and texture from added pecans. Cinnamon sugar on the outside adds a hint of cinnamon flavor. If you love banana bread make sure to try this recipe. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
