Banana Bread

So many of us have spent a little extra time in the kitchen over the past couple months with the stay at home orders flooding across the country. One thing that we realized is that a lot of people had a sudden hankering for banana bread!

Today we’re sharing our special family recipe for banana bread. We have a little secret ingredient that helps make our bread ultra moist and delicious. Any guesses?! …

It’s sour cream!

Yup, that’s right. We put sour cream in our banana bread and it’s SO good. It enhances the texture and adds the slightest tang making it a perfect blend of flavors. We promise you’ll go back for a second slice!
