Sour Cream Banana Bread

I took my mom's sour cream banana bread recipe and made just a couple of changes, but I am showing you the original recipe card in front of my memorable photo of her.

Instead of adding 1 c. white sugar, I added 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. light brown sugar. I also added a little (1-2 t.) maple syrup to the batter-I love the addition of maple syrup to banana bread. Then I substituted unbleached flour for the all-purpose flour-it makes it just a little better texture-a little more dense.

The sour cream keeps it moist, and the recipe lists "oleo" - I love that! Take me right back to 1969
