One of our members, Ali Bresnahan, has posted a wonderful recipe for sour cream banana bread. I thought I would try it and it was soooooo good that I made another loaf, but with my own twist. This one has not only bananas but ripe peaches too. I had to make a few changes to the basic recipe to accommodate the extra liquid from the peaches, and I added some spices to accent the flavor. Thanks Ali for your basic which is terrific. I hope you will try my version too.
