Sour Cream Banana Bread

This is my very favorite banana bread recipe, I think because of the extra moisture that the sour cream adds.  My favorite way to eat it is sliced with whipped cream cheese on top.  Oh, and I'd double this recipe, because one loaf never seems to be enough.  Plus leftovers make a great breakfast snack.

Sour Cream Banana Bread

2/3 c. butter
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. bananas, mashed
2 1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn baking soda
1/2 tspn salt
1/2 c. sour cream
1 c. chopped nuts

Cream butter and sugar together; add eggs and bananas, beat until smooth.  In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.  Add dry mixture alternately with sour cream to banana mix.  Blend well.  Fold in nuts and pour into a greased 9"x5" loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 55-65 minutes.  Makes 8 servings
