“I've had some very blah banana breads, but this one is wonderful. My husband found this one to use one day when we had a bunch of bananas that weren't getting any younger. My co-workers loved it recently when I made it for a breakfast at work. This is from a cookbook called "America's Best Recipes". In the book, the recipe is called "Banana, Sour Cream and Walnut Loaf".”
