Joe's Banana Bread

Posted by Lori:
Here's another recipe from my husband. He started with a recipe he found on the internet then changed some things to make it his own. One thing he's started doing, even with the Pumpkin Bread I have posted on this blog before, is to add a small package of vanilla pudding to the mix. He takes away the equivalent amount of flour as I will explain below. It makes for an extra-moist bread. YUM!

Dusting mixture:
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Bread mixture:
3/4 cup butter, softened (not margarine)
3 cups white sugar
3 eggs
6 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 (16 ounce) container sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 (3.3 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding
Enough flour to equal 4 1/2 cups (Note: Place pudding mix into one cup measuring cup, then add flour to equal one cup. Then continue with 3 1/2 cups more of flour)

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
3 Tablespoons butter, softened (not margarine)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease four 7 x 3 inch loaf pans or 2 regular loaf pans. In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup whte sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Dust pans lightly with cinnamon and sugar mixture.

In a large bowl, cream butter and 3 cups sugar. Mix in eggs, mashed bananas, sour cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix in salt, baking soda, pudding and flour. Divide into prepared loaf pans.

In small bowl, combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, butter, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix until crumbly. Sprinkle over bread batter.

Bake for one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
