3/4 cup softened butter 

3 cups sugar

3 eggs

6 very ripe bananas, mashed

16oz sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons baking soda

4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease and flour four 7×3 inch pans. 

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla and cinnamon.  Mix salt, baking soda and flour in a separate bowl and then add to banana mixture.  Divide into prepared pans.

Bake for 1 hour, until toothpick comes out clean and tops bounce slightly to touch.

This recipe is huge.  Since it makes four mid-sized loaves, I like to keep one out for immediate consumption, put two in the freezer for quick company treats or a random breakfast and give one to a neighbor.  Enjoy!
