Janet’s Rich Banana Bread

Life has been busy this month, for me and my DB. I just finished a four-day trip and my DB is currently going through EIW (early interview week). What does that even mean? It means he has 21 interviews in five days. How intense is that? They go room to room in a hotel and go on twenty-minute interviews with different firms. I don’t know how they do it.

As you can tell, my blog hasn’t been a top priority in life recently. I’m focusing on work (both jobs) and supporting my DB to help him make it through this stressful week. Don’t get me wrong, I still love baking… I just haven’t had the time to do much of it or update.

Meanwhile, here’s a recipe to hold you up until the next one. More banana bread! This one was just okay. I may have over baked it, causing the crust to be thicker than I would have liked. The inside was moist, but the top was a bit crumbly. Recipe from AllRecipes.



“This is the moistest banana bread that I have ever tasted. It’s also very easy to make!”


1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 medium bananas, sliced.


Directions :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the melted butter and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the butter mixture until smooth. Finally, fold in the sour cream, walnuts and bananas. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
