Banana Cake

What's the best thing to do with brown bananas? Make banana bread of course. I was a little bored with banana bread and wanted to try something that could pass as dessert. I found this recipe once again on All Recipes and it had great reviews. It turned out really good. It was very moist and honestly tasted pretty similar to banana bread however the sour cream is what made it different. Great recipe that I definitely recommend.

Banana Bread
Adapted from All Recipes
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sour cream*
1 1/2 cup mashed bananas
1 1/2 cups cake flour **
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs and beat well. Dissolve the baking soda in the sour cream and add it to the butter mixture. Beat well. Add the mashed bananas and mix in. Add cake flour and mix well. Stir in vanilla extract.
3. Pour batter into the bundt pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.

* I used fat free sour cream
**I used whole wheat pastry flour which made the cake not taste too sweet
