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

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

- 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.

  2. very beautiful loaf! looks so moist and soft!

  3. Ohh I have hazel nuts at home! Okay, will give this a try when I have sone ripe bananas. Thanks!

  4. Wow, I can tell from the moist look that it is delicious! Hope I will be able to try it too.

  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...

  6. This does look really moist and yummy. It's got all my favourite ingredients in there: banana, sourcream and hazelnut...I can just imagine how fragrant your kitchen will be when you bake this.

  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!

    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.

    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 :)

  17. Ah DG, you've managed to replicate this recipe! Looks very good! I would have used ground almond too! So moist and fragrant!

  18. Sour cream is one of my fave ingredients in baking. It just makes everything more moist and flavourful! Ur banana cake looks delish!

  19. Your cake looks so fluffy. It must be really good.
