My New Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

This is the second time I have made this recipe and it's now official, it is my new favorite!  :) 

Banana Bread

1 stick butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup mashed very ripe bananas (3 medium)
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter or spray a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Or use 4 mini loaf pans. With electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat to mix. In medium bowl whisk together flour, soda,, and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix to combine. Stir in nuts and pour into prepared pan(s)  If using one pan, bake about 1 hour 10 minutes or until tests done. If using the mini pans, bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until done. Let rest in pan 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
