Brent's Favorite Banana Bread

Shannon Smith


My son Brent could live on this if I let him. Sour cream & cinnamon are the "secret" ingredients that make it so good.

Note that this makes a lot - 4 loaves. It does freeze well, but you could of course cut the recipe in half. I also usually cover the loaves with foil the last 20-30 minutes of baking so it doesn't get too brown.
