  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts ¼ cup set aside for topping the batter
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 2 medium bananas very ripe and soft, mashed


  • Preheat oven to 350° and make sure the oven rack is in the middle.
  • In a large bowl or stand-mixer, mix the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and lemon juice and continue mixing until well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the sugar-butter-egg mixture, and stir until well mixed.
  • Add ½ cup of the walnuts (reserving ¼ cup), the sour cream, and the mashed bananas.
  • Pour into a greased 9 x 5 loaf pan. Top with the remaining walnuts, running down the center. Bake on the center rack for 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Allow it to cool in the baking pan about 15 minutes, then remove to finish cooling.
  • If you can't stand to wait, now is the perfect time to have a slice, with or without butter!
