Banana nut bread is a dense bread cake made with ripe bananas. Today’s banana nut bread with sour cream is a rich and a moist bread by Martha Stewart. I followed the recipe to dot. It is a perfect bread to serve for breakfast, as a snack or during teatime. If one isn’t calories conscious, this delicious banana nut bread is a must try.

I am not a banana fan but lately I am loving bakes with bananas, though I still have an aversion to the fruit. For the last week of this bake-a-thon, I have three banana bread cakes and all mouthwatering. Apart from these three breads, banana chocolate chip muffins is another delightful bake with bananas I baked this month.

The first bread for this week is a banana nut bread with sour cream and butter. Use of both sour cream and butter makes it a rich and delectable bread. I made ½ the recipe which yields 2 mini loaves. Full recipe yields 4 mini loaves or one 9″ loaf. Recipe listed below is half the original recipe.
