Banana Bread Yumminess*

I got this recipe courtesy of one of my best friends, Tucker [you can read her take on it here] and as a banana bread fan, but not really someone who enjoys baking, I thought I would try it out since she recommended it so.

Totally worth it, people.

So much, in fact, I've made it twice in the past two weeks. And both times, it doesn't last around our house for longer than a couple of days. It's ridiculously yummy. It's moist & chunky & sweet. Basically, just all around DELISH!

So, make it. And enjoy!

Flour's Bakery Banana Bread

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup oil
3 1/2 bananas, very ripe, mashed
2 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped [I hate walnuts, so ommited this part, & it was still so tasty]

Set oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Beat sugar and eggs with a whisk until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes.Drizzle in oil. Add mashed bananas, creme fraiche, and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients and nuts. Pour into a lined loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

This looks so good! Makes me miss regular flour. Maybe I can figure out a gluten-free version. :)
