Honey Banana Bread
I know what you are thinking!
OH NO NOT ANOTHER BANANA BREAD RECIPE!
Well this is not that, it is way from that!
This is that recipe you use when you have all those extra bananas sitting around the house.
You can dress it up for company in this pretty little bundt pan, or make it in a loaf pan.
This is not your standard banana bread.
It is not as dense as the usual loaf like banana breads.
I think it is the sour cream that makes it so moist.
It is more cake like, if that is possible.
I am not sure if it is the honey that gives it a brown umber type of look.
It sort of tastes like there is more brown sugar in it than there actually is.
This dish is so versatile, if you used bananas that were not that ripe that would be great also.
That is exactly what I did.
I couldn’t wait to make this recipe and didn’t have old bananas.
In fact, I had very new bananas and it was fantastic for breakfast.
