Banana Sour Cream Bread

This is the Kings Cake that we made last week. It is a wonderful anytime, go to, quick fix! We put blueberries in the middle but you could substitute with anything, I was thinking Pecans, Chocolate Chips or raisins?

Banana Sour Cream Bread

  1. 1/2 c. shortening or oil
  2. 1 c sugar
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  5. 1/2 tsp vanilla
  6. 1/2 c. sour cream
  7. 2 c flour or for us I used the Pamelas GF baking mix
  8. 1 tsp baking powder and soda
  9. 1/2 c blueberries (optional)
  10. 1/4 tsp. salt
  11. 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Cream shortening and 1 cup sugar until light. Beat in eggs; mashed banana and vanilla. Add sour cream and blend on low speed. In a separate bowl, measure the flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Gradually add this to the banana mixture and blend. Save your blueberries or raisins etc. in a separate bowl for later.

Generously grease a 6 1/2 cup ring mold or tube pan. Spoon half of the batter around the Pan's bottom . Sprinkle the blueberries or your choice over this layer. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Cover with remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done. Cool about 5 minutes and remove bread from pan.

This recipe can double as a cake. If so, you may want to frost it with 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup mashed bananas, 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, and 1 pound of confectioners sugar. We had vanilla ice cream with ours!


  1. Good gracious, that looks so yummy. Thank you for sharing

  2. Sounds good....Like it really didn't need ice cream. Brrrr.

  3. I found your blog through the community of change. This cake sounds delicious. We are gluten free too. I'm thinking blueberries and chocolate chips...I love that combo. Thanks for ahring.
