Eat Drink & Be Mary: Banana Bread with Orange Butter


Banana Bread with Orange Butter

Just when you thought banana bread couldn't get any better, I went and added the hint of refreshing oranges with my Grandma's orange butter.

Sour Cream Banana Bread 
------------------------------------   (makes one loaf)
1 C Sugar
1/2 C Oil
2 Eggs
1 C Mashed Bananas (2 medium)
1/2 C Sour Cream
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 1/2 C All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Salt

Instructions: (preheat oven to 350F)
1. Grease 9x5 loaf pan.  Then line the pan with parchment paper and grease that as well.  (Trust me you need both)
2. In a large bowl, beat together sugar and oil.
3. Add eggs, bananas, sour cream, and vanilla.  Blend well.
4. Add flour, baking soda and salt.  Stir until dry ingredients are moistened.  
5. Pour into prepared pan.
6. Bake at 350F for 1 hour (or until toothpick comes out clean).
7. Cool for 5 minutes.
8. Remove from pan, and let cool completely.

Orange Butter
(makes enough for 2 loafs)

1 stick of Butter
1 8oz package of Cream Cheese
Zest of 1 Orange
2-4 tbsp. Sugar
Orange Juice

1. Cream together (room temperature) butter and cream cheese.
2. Add in zest of one orange.
3. Add in sugar 2-4 tbsp. to taste.
4. Add in orange juice to taste.

This orange butter is beyond amazing when paired with this banana bread recipe.  After cutting banana bread into slices,  add the orange butter to one slice.  Make sure to really lather it on there (sorta thick).  Add the top of the sandwhich, and then cut them in half to make mini sandwiches.  


These freeze really well.  My suggestion is to make two loaves, add the orange butter, cut them into mini sandwiches and then freeze half of them.


  Y'all this recipe is from my Bubby (so you know it's a winner) is the best.  It's the perfect recipe for bridal showers, a summer day, a picnic or BBQ, or just for the heck of it.  Kick your banana bread up a notch with my Bubby's recipe + orange won't regret it.
