1 cup butter (softened)
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups mashed bananas (about 3)
1 cup sour cream (can substitute 1 cup plain Greek yogurt)
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour one 9-inch loaf pan (or 3 small ones). Pan should be 3/4 full of batter. In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and mix well. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; combine with the bitter mixture. Add the sour cream, bananas and vanilla; stir well. Pout into prepared pans and bake for 50-55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and then turn the loaf out onto a rack.
