  • 159g butter
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 50g coarsely chopped nuts (if desired)
  • 2 x eggs

Method

For the banana bread

  • Pre-heat oven to 170c/325f/ gas mark 3
  • Grease a 2lb loaf tin & line with baking parchment
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy using a hand mixer. Gradually add the eggs
  • Sift in the flour, salt, bicarbonate and baking powder. Mix together well then add in the sour cream and mashed bananas. Fold in the nuts
  • Pour into the loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 20 mins in the tin. Then turn out onto a wire rack and remove the paper
  • If not making cream cheese topping, sprinkle chopped nuts on top to finish!

For the optional cream cheese topping

  • Soften butter and mix well together with cream cheese using a hand mixer with flat beaters
  • Gradually add the icing sugar on a low speed. When all mixed in pop on high speed for about 30 seconds
  • Spread over the cake adding the banana chips for decoration

Top tips:

  • If you don't have sour cream, or want a healthier option, try low fat yoghurt as an alternative
