Banana Bread

Banana Bread

A slice of freshly baked quick bread of some sort sounded really good this morning.  I walked into my kitchen and saw I had some ripe bananas, so it was obvious.

  1. Looks incredible Anne! I have been actually yearning for a good banana bread!! The sour cream must make it very moist. I have never tasted Mexican vanilla extract. Sounds wonderful!!

  2. Love this recipe, I make it often Substituting Greek yogurt for the sour cream and adding mini chocolate chips. Always comes out perfect! It disappears quickly!
