Hallelujah Banana Bread

I'm not sure how I came across this recipe but I think I found it on a blog via Tastespotting.  But anyway, it sounded too interesting to pass up. The article below tells how this recipe came to be.

The odd thing is, that article does not include the recipe. Strange.  I found it on the same website but published a different day. It's a really wonderful and easy to make recipe.  I would say it's right up there with my favorite banana bread recipes.  I like it because the butter is melted, therefore you don't have to cream the butter and sugar together.  I did not add any nuts but I did add some cinnamon to my bread.  I realize my photos kind of suck but that's as good as I can do today.  It's so rainy and gray outside today - good banana bread making weather.









Hallelujah Banana Bread
http://www.dallasnews.com/lifestyles/food/latest-recipes/20100511-Hallelujah-Banana-Bread-3892.ece

from the Dallas Morning News




2 c flour

1 c sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/2 c coarsely chopped walnuts  (I did not add walnuts)

2 eggs

1 1/2 c mashed bananas (about 4 small bananas)

1/4 c sour cream

1 tsp. vanilla

1 stick (1/2 c) butter melted, and brought to room temp.



In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, powder, soda and salt. Mix well and toss in the walnuts to coat. In a separate bowl beat the eggs, add the mashed banana, sour cream, vanilla, and butter. Stir well to combine.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the wet mixture and stir well until thoroughly combined. Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Cover loosely with foil if it seems to be browning too quickly. Reduce heat to 325 and bake about 20 minutes until a cake tester inserted in the center comes away clean.
