Yield: 18 to 24 Servings
· 1 Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
· 2 to 3 Tablespoons Shortening or Butter for the pan, room temperature
· 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
· 4 Large Eggs, room temperature
· 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
· 2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
· 2 Teaspoons Salt
· 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
· ½ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
· 2¾ Cups Very Ripe Mashed Bananas
· 1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
· 2/3 Cup Sour Cream or Plain Greek Yogurt
· 2 Cups Chopped Pecan or Walnuts (optional)
· 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
· 1½ Tablespoons Milk
Browned Butter Icing
4 Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Milk
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar on low speed. Add the eggs to the mixture one at a time making sure each one is fully incorporated and then stop mixing.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg directly over the bowl. Mix on low speed just to combine. Next, add the mashed bananas, vanilla, and sour cream or yogurt, and 1 cup of nuts, mix until the batter is just combined, do not overmix. (Tip: Make sure the batter at the bottom of the bowl is fully incorporated.)
Grease a 9x11x2 inch baking pan with shortening or butter. You can also line the pan with parchment paper for easy release. Pour the batter into the pan. Top the batter with the remaining cup of nuts. Place it on the middle rack of the oven and bake for about 45 to 48 minutes or until a skewer is inserted and comes out clean.
Once done, allow the bread to rest in the pan for about 5 minutes and then turn the bread out onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely. Top with icing if desired. Slice and enjoy.
Melt the butter in a small sauce pot over medium-high heat swirling it around the pot until it's a light golden brown color. Place it in a medium size bowl immediately do not allow it to stay in the pot or it will burn. Add the powdered sugar and milk, whisk. Drizzle the icing over the banana bread and let it set for about 20 mins. Serve.
