Banana Bread

This is my Banana Bread recipe that Camp Director Winnie talked about in the Campfire Chat today. I had written it quickly for a Ravelry post, so excuse the rushed way it's written.

2 lg. eggs
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup veg oil
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (or mace if want milder)
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans!)

Preheat to 350
grease/flour 2 loaf pans
sift together baking soda and powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, set aside
in another bowl or mixer, beat eggs, sugar, oil. add vanilla
blend in bananas
add flour mix all at once to wet ingredients
when combined, add sour cream and optional nuts
pour half batter into one pan, half into another (these will be flat loaves that will not spill over) Bake for 40 minutes
Check. The loaves are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

If browning too fast, put tin foil over top for last 10 mins. cool in pan 10 mins, then cool on wire rack.
