my FAVORITE banani-nanoo bread!!!


 
OK.  This is one of my favorite things to make & untill recent I hadn't made it at all.  In fact it had well been over 5 YEARS since I last made it... Go figure.  It's based on the Martha Stewart Banana Bread which if you make that you can't go wrong either.  Here it goes...
1 Stick butter (they say unsalted, but I use salted it brings out the flavor)
1 C. sugar (I like the all natural organic 365 at whole foods)
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking soda
3/4 C. whole wheat flour
3/4 C. white flour (THIS CAN BE ALL ONE TYPE OR THE OTHER)
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamin
a couple grates of fresh nutmeg (has to be fresh)
2-3 ripe bananas
1/2 C. lite sour cream
1/2 C. handful chopped walnuts

- cream butter and sugar
- add eggs and vanilla beating untill fuffy
- SIFT flour(s) and baking soda the whole wheat makes it a little more filling.
- combine slowly with  butter mixture along with cinnamin and nutmeg
- fold in bananas, sour cream and nuts DON'T OVER MIX

Pour into a loaf pan that is buttered on bottom and lined with parchment then put into a preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hourish... My oven take about an hour and 15 minutes untill my toothpick comes out clean.  But I don't really think my oven is all that accuate.  I need to get a thermometer and test it I guess. 
I love it toasted with a little butter for breakfast (after my green juice).  It's good.
