image_9This is my go-to banana bread recipe; I’ve been making it for over 2 years now and it never fails. I don’t always have sour cream on hand, but I’ve made it both with and without and the difference is really minimal. Also, I like to puree my bananas before adding them to the mixture, because I find it allows the banana flavor to cook throughout the bread instead of having small pieces of banana in each bite. Do whatever works for you!

If I ever make it to Boston for a weekend getaway, you better believe I will be stopping at Flour bakery to sample the original.

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup oil

2. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.

3. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.

4. Add eggs, oil, vanilla extract, and sour cream if you’re using it.

5. In a blender or food processor, blend the bananas with a splash of water until you get a smoothie-like texture. Add the banana puree to the bowl and stir everything to combine.
