Banana Bread, An Addictive Substance.

You may know by now that I love a good banana bread.
I have written about the glorious sweet stuff over here, and here.
Two very different recipes I have tried, but only one wins...

Doesn't it look delicious?

My little guy seems to like it...

Anyway, a long time ago I shared the link to the recipe, but I figured I may as well pop it over here to make things easier....

Best Banana Bread


55g (1/4 cup) firmly packed brown sugar
30g (1/4 cup) almonds, chopped
375ml sour cream
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
125g unsalted butter, melted
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed


Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line two 10 x 18cm loaf tins with baking paper. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and almonds and put aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the sour cream and bicarbonate of soda, set aside for 5 minutes then stir in the melted butter, sugar and eggs. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Gradually fold in the sour cream mixture, followed by the bananas.
Pour the mixture equally into the prepared tins and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top.
Bake for 1-11/2 hours or until a skewer comes out clean. Set aside and cool in tins for about 20 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
