This is the best banana bread ever, I think even if you're not a fan of banana bread you will still like this!
Martha Stewart's Banana
1/2 c butter (1 stick), at room temperature
1 c sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 c very ripe bananas, mashed (~3 bananas)
1/2 c sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
My twist is simple, make the above recipe and add Cinnamon chips( can get at Albertsan's)
and a streusel topping you can use any recipe you choose but here is mine.
For the streusel topping
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
6 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter 9x5x3 inch loaf pan; set aside. With an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat to incorporate. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix until just combined. Add mashed bananas, sour cream and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts (I didn't put this in) Add the Cinnamon chips and pour into pan put the streusel on top. Bake until cake tester inserted into center of loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
