Classic Banana Bundt

Today for TWD we are doing a "rewind" -- this is one of my favorite recipes from Dorie's Baking From My Home To Yours. It was first picked for us at Tuesdays with Dorie to try by Mary at The Food Librarian, and you can find the recipe here at Mary's site if you do not have the book and are looking for an amazing banana cake / bread / bundt recipe.


I say banana cake or bread because this banana cake tastes like banana bread to my husband and ever since we made it with TWD back in August 2009 it has become "our" banana bread recipe. It is probably the most baked recipe from BFMHTY at our house, and it is picky husband's favorite banana bread.

He likes it plain, full banana flavor with no add-ins, which is delicious. I like it plain as well, but love it with add-ins, my favorites being coconut and chopped macadamias, which were add-ins in my previous favorite Hawaiian Banana Bread recipe. Don't tell that recipe, but this one with the add-ins is even better!


Before and after baking shots...


Sometime I switch out the sour cream for buttermilk, I've even used whole milk once before in place of the sour cream and this bread / cake still came out perfectly. I also like to add extra vanilla. If you are making minis this recipe is perfect as well, I think it would also work great in a plain old muffin tin or loaf pan -- although I haven't tried it yet, because a bundt is just so much more fun :)
