Banana Nut Bread

Ingredients

1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) butter, softened
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed very ripe bananas
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped walnuts

Method

Preheat oven to 350-degrees. 

In a bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until the mixture is light. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in mashed bananas.

In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture alternately with sour cream. Combine this mixture well. Stir in walnuts. 

Pour the batter into a buttered loaf pan, 9x5x2 3/4-inches, and bake bread in preheated oven for one hour and 15 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Transfer the bread to a rack and let it cook for 20 minutes. Turn the bread out on the rack and let cool completely. 

This recipe seems to have originated in the "Wesson Oil Cookbook" of some years ago. 
 

Notes

These clipped recipes for Banana Bread and Banana Nut Bread were originally published in the Baltimore Evening Sun. The article must have been syndicated because the reverse side of the clipping contains information from a Tulsa, Oklahoma newspaper.  I can not find any indication of the exact date of publication, but whole beef briskets were $0.98/pound.
