Banana bread is the perfect breakfast or dessert. Made with overripe bananas, buttermilk, sour cream, and chunky 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.
How to serve this banana bread
I like serving banana bread with softened butter and coffee. I always add walnuts to my banana bread.
What other ingredients should I add to this banana bread

How long do you bake banana bread for?
I baked this for 55 minutes. If you over bake it, it may come out dry so be careful.
