Banana Loaf


This is another great recipe using sour cream, which shared by Edith – Precious Moments. Actually, I was lucky to try it before I baked it :), that when Edith baked it on our last bloggers gathering.
And guess what ??? It seemed so fragrant and delicious that it was finished up first among the food items. :)

Recipe source: Small Cakes - Roger Pizey

Ingredients:
2 Bananas, mashed or puree
150 gr Unsalted butter
230 gr Castor sugar
50 gr Ground hazelnuts (I used ground almonds)
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
175 gr Plain flour
1 tsp Salt (I used only ½ tsp)
1 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Baking powder
133 gr Sour cream

Method:
- Greased and lined a 18x7x8 cm deep loaf tin.
- Preheat oven to 170 degree.
- Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
- Add in ground hazelnuts and followed by eggs.
- Sift in the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix well together.
- Mix in the sour cream and finally add in the bananas.
- Pour into pan and bake for 30 mins or until cook.

  5. The cake has a wonderful moist texture. I'm always not a big fan of sour cream...I wonder if the replacement of sour cream to yogurt works...

  15. Wen,
    Me too, actually after X’mas baking, I also become a bit lazy, while the CNY just around the corner, still no mood to bake cookies yet LOL. Anyway, this recipe is a keeper, should try this out when time allowed :)

    J3ss, Thank you :)

    Honey Bee,
    Oh that’s great that you have hazelnut at home, I don’t have it, so I substitute will ground almond. Sure you will love this cake!

    HomeKreation,
    You should try this out, I notice that you are the banana cake fans, right! :)

    Sorry, Zoe. I really don’t know how to reply this as I have no experience to compare the end result using yogurt will be the same as using sour cream. But I know some people tried it.

    Leny,
    Thanks for dropping by and nice comments. Too bad, I don’t have hazelnut at home that I substituted with ground almond. But the taste still good. Give it a try, you’ll love this :)
