Tonight the kids and I whipped up the third banana bread recipe for our quest. This particular version is adapted from Martha Stewart’s banana bread and was sent to me by an old high school friend. Thanks Liz! The major differences in this recipe compared to the first two are that it uses only white sugar and replaces the oil with sour cream. Until now, I had never seen a banana bread recipe with sour cream, so I was intrigued.
Tonight’s recipe is probably the best on our quest so far, though we can’t say for sure until we test them all together. Mr. N, Miss A and I all give this one 4 spoons. Mr. N especially liked the crust, and I was really surprised by the results. I have to say I was leery of not using oil and brown sugar. As for dad he liked it, but says it still doesn’t stand-up to his favorite so he’s going with 3 spoons.
Really we’ve yet to have a bad banana bread, or even just an okay one; so far it’s been a very tasty quest and we can’t wait to try the others in our stack!
