The pecans and brown sugar make a delicious streusel on this banana bread. This recipe can also be frozen, so you can just thaw it out on potluck day! Thank you to Brandy G. for sharing this recipe!
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sour cream
2 medium bananas
1/2 cup, plus extra for the top, pecans
Mix butter and white sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and stir. Separately, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to the batter and stir. Mix in the sour cream, bananas, and 1/2 cup pecans.
Add batter to a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with brown sugar and pecans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.
This recipe also freezes well. Cool completely, wrap, and freeze. Thaw 3 hours before potluck time, slice, and serve. It’s especially good served cold!
