Banana Sour Cream Bread

This is my absolute favorite banana bread recipe.

1/4 C. white sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 C. butter
3 C. sugar
3 eggs
6 ripe bananas
1 (16 oz) container sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking soda
4 1/2 C. flour
1 C. nuts

For topping:
Stir together 1/4 C. sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and dust pans with it (this recipe makes 4 regular sized bread pans). First you will want to spray the pan with Pam or whatever you like to do, then dust the pans with the sugar/cinnamon - any left over I like to pour over top of the bread before I cook it.

Mix the butter and sugar - add bananas, eggs, sour cream and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingredients well. Add to the banana mixture then add nuts.

Bake for 1 hour (I usually add an extra 10 minutes= 70 minutes) at 300. Let cool on a rack.
