Banana Bread with Almonds

Everyone is always in search of that perfect chocolate chip cookie, or that perfect white cake, but in my case, today was to figure out the perfect banana bread recipe. I’ve definitely have had my share of trying different recipes and have read in many blogs that adding sour cream (and/or yogurt, can’t remember) will make your bread more moist. So, off i go to search and compare. I think i have figured it out! I’m not a big fan of walnuts, so i substituted almonds instead. It still gives you that nice crunch, especially with the added sprinkle of almond/cinnamon sugar on top. The sour cream definitely did its trick because i have declared this recipe to be the best banana bread everrrr. Yes, it deserves that many R’s and probably more.

Best Banana Bread Everrrr with Almonds

1 stick of butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2-3 medium sized bananas, mashed
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sour cream

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease loaf pan. Cream together the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add in dry ingredients, then mashed banana, almonds and sour cream. I stirred it together by hand (i have a tendency to over mix). Pour into loaf pan. In a small bowl, mix all the topping ingredients and sprinkle it on top. Bake for 1 hour.
