  • 8 Tablespoons unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups mashed bananas about 5 medium bananas
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of fine sea salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with baking spray, set aside.
  • Cream together the butter and brown sugar in the body of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or in a large bowl with an electric hand mixer until light and fluffy, 2 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, stirring them in completely after each addition. Scrape down the sides.
  • Add the mashed bananas, sour cream, cinnamon, and vanilla, mix it in until combined fully. Scrape down the sides.
  • Lastly, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt into the mixer. Stir together until just combined with no dry patches.
  • Pour the batter into the loaf pan and smooth out the top.
  • Bake for 55-65 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. At the 20 minute mark, very loosely place a piece of foil on top so the bread doesn’t get too brown.
  • Place the pan on a wire rack and let it cool for 10 minutes. Take the bread out of the pan and let it cool completely on the wire rack. Serve warm or room temperature.
