Have some overripe bananas that are about to go to waste? Make this incredibly moist and buttery Banana Bread. I folded in chopped walnuts and then topped it off with more walnuts.
The best banana bread is moist and fluffy. This won’t be the sweetest banana bread you’ll have because I made sure of it. I wanted this to have some sweetness to it but not too much. I love banana bread but I don’t like when it tastes too much like banana because then it just tastes like it has banana extract. Not a fan of flavored extracts.
What makes this banana bread super moist? The sour cream and buttermilk. I like to use a combination of both.
I like serving banana bread with softened butter and coffee. I always add walnuts to my banana bread.
Chocolate chips? Peanut Butter? I have the most amazing chocolate peanut butter banana bread.
I baked this for 55 minutes. If you over bake it, it may come out dry so be careful.
