Outstanding Banana Bread
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted
1/2 cup white sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
3 medium sized bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together flour and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside. Combine melted butter, sugar, sour cream, eggs, bananas and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly. Add to flour mixture and mix with your paddle just until combined Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray and add batter to pan.
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts, (pecans or walnuts)
Combine and spread on top of the banana batter. Take a knife and swirl into batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 65 to 70 minutes checking until done. It took mine about 70 minutes and I covered the top with foil about 2/3 way through. Remove from oven and let cool. Let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and turn it out onto a cooling rack.
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk, enough for it to drizzle
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together and drizzle over cooled banana bread.
