I've made several recipes for banana bread and by far Martha Stewart's recipe is the best. The key to the moist cake is sour cream. In this case I used a low fat greek yogurt and it worked just as well. I also made it with half whole wheat and half white flour. A little cinnimon & freshly ground nutmeg are also super additions. Hope you enjoy!
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)
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 or plain greek yogurt
1/2 C. handful chopped walnuts
1/2 C. raisins hydrated with boiling water
- 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... All ovens are different.
Enjoy! I love this toasted with butter or cream cheese...
