Sliced Sour Cream Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 8 servings

Ingredients 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 very ripe, darkly speckled bananas, mashed well (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch loaf pan with parchment paper leaving an overhang on the two longer sides. Grease the parchment paper with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the mashed bananas, sour cream, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. Stir in chocolate chunks, then scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake the bread for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove the bread from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before using the parchment paper overhangs to lift the loaf out of the pan and onto a rack to cool completely.

  1. This banana bread turned out great. It’s nice and moist and delicious. Both my husband and I loved it. I used applesauce instead of vegetable oil. And I put a 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon too. I will use this recipe again. Thank you.

  2. hello. is the cut up banana horizontally part of the three bananss required for the recipe. This is a bit misleading?
