This is the best way I've found to use up ripe bananas.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 8 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, cream butter and 6 tablespoons sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in banana and sour cream. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Combine the walnuts, cinnamon and remaining sugar.
  2. Spoon half of batter into a greased 6-cup fluted tube pan. Sprinkle with nut mixture; top with remaining batter. Bake at 350° for 32-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
