Banana Bread

Delicious and fast banana bread recipe

What is awesome about banana bread? It is very fast and easy to make, tastes great and you don’t have to throw away those bananas that you forgot to eat last week :). Oh and forget about butter spread, works best with Nutella and a glass of warm milk. Enjoy!

This is not going to take that long to prepare, so you might want to preheat your oven to 350° F / 175° C right from the start. Mash your bananas and then add all your ingredients except flour to a medium size bowl and mix well.

When everything is well incorporated add the flour and continue mixing. You can actually use a fork to mix this thing and when you get to this consistency it is time to go to the next step.

At this point you are basically done, easy eh? You only need to grease your bread pan and pour the batter inside like you see in my picture. ;)

    So pretty. I made banana bread today! With almost the same recipe. I only used 1 and 3/4 cups flour. I love how you used sour cream. Will have to try that next time. Your bread looks amazing!

    I was going to try and make this, because it looks really yummy. But is it really correct, that you’re only supposed to use 1/4 tsp sour cream? It sounds as a very small amount

      My bad, it is actually a quarter of a cup. It’s been corrected :) Thanks for pointing it out.
