Oh no! Another banana bread recipe? Well, consider it anyway... this one is a little different. The sour cream makes this Banana Sour Cream Bread so moist it melts in your mouth. The cinnamon adds just the right touch of spice. Walnuts add a nice crunch, but can be omitted if desired - or necessary. The flavor is just wonderful! This banana bread is great for gift giving and holidays. These loaves freeze well, too.

Did You Know?
Banana bread recipes were not developed until the end of the 18th century. This took place in America, where pearlash was discovered. Pearlash is a refined form of potash, and it produces carbon dioxide gas in dough. Baking powder was not developed commercially until 1857.
