The series of eggs free baking recipes continues to grow in my blog and today I am going to share a foolproof recipe of Eggless Banana Bread with Sour Cream.

Some of the pointers for the recipe are :

  1. I let the bananas get black and then use them, as it adds more sweetness if the bananas are well ripe.
  2. I have used all purpose flour for this eggless banana bread. If you are going to use whole wheat flour, I would suggest to use it in proportion with all purpose flour (1:3).
  3. I have not added any nuts or chocolate chips in this recipe, but feel free to add in this recipe. Baking is fun and go nuts to try out any flavors you like, not necessarily vanilla, as used in this recipe.
  4. One important thing to note is that the banana bread or banana cake takes time to bake, and best results are obtained when you bake it at low heat. In this recipe, I baked the Eggless Banana Bread at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 55 minutes. Each oven is different; so I would suggest, when you are using your oven to bake, initially set the timer for 55 minutes and then check for doneness with a toothpick every 5 minutes till you feel its well baked. Remember, this bread is really moist and too much overbake will make it dry.
  5. I love the addition of sour cream while baking cakes or breads, specially when you are baking at low heat. It not only makes the bread richer in taste, but also makes it really moist.

So, I decided to blog my Best Ever Eggless Banana Bread with Sour Cream anyway even if you may not want another banana bread recipe 😉
