Best EVER Banana Bread

When are little family lived in Columbus, OH during our medical school years.
We made many life long friends.
We all made a Columbus Friends Cookbook.
Many of my favorite recipes are from this cook book, this Banana Bread recipe is one of them.
I have tried many other Banana Bread recipes none compare to this one.
It is by far the BEST EVER Banana Bread recipe.
And it also reminds me of my sweet friend Margo who is a great cook!

*Tip-the bread will be much sweeter if the Bananas you use are very ripe, like almost all brown ripe.*

What you Need:
-1 cup butter
-2 cups sugar
-4 large eggs
-2 tsp. vanilla
-2 tsp. lemon juice

2. Mix butter and sugar together until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla until well combined. Blend in lemon juice, sour cream, and mashed bananas.

This banana bread is by far the BEST EVER I have tasted. I believe it is the sour cream along with the brown sugar & cinnamon topping that makes it soo good.
I make small 6 inch loaves of the bread and freeze them. When friends/family come over I have instant dessert. (The recipe makes
8 mini loaf pans).
