Lauren Maher's Grandmother | Published on 1/23/2022

NANA’s NANA BREAD: (otherwise known as Banana Bread! )

Lauren’s recipe for banana bread, affectionately known as “Nana Bread”, is passed down from her paternal grandmother.  It is EXTRA moist and mild enough to have for breakfast the day of a big run.  It is also a great recovery snack.

Gather those ripe bananas and try this yummy recipe.  Note the “special tip” at the end.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees 

Grease and lightly flour a Bundt Pan

In large bowl fork together:

3 bananas 

3 tablespoons sour cream

2 Eggs 

1 stick of Butter (room temperature)

2 cups of sugar

In small bowl mix:

2 cups Flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Add flour mixture to the large bowl ingredients and mix together.

Pour into a Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour, or until the fork comes out clean.

SPECIAL TIP: when getting a recipe from your loved ones always get them to write it out. 

It’s so special to have it in their handwriting.
