"I just pulled this out of the oven, cut a slice, slathered butter all over it and then melted into a puddle of happy taste buds as I took a bite. YUM. It’s so moist and flavorful!"~Tasty Kitchen Review

I was intrigued. The recipe is from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman! What a great review this received. I was going to bake my usual banana bread recipe, but decided to see if anything else peaked my interest. I love trying new recipes and seeing if there is one even better than my usual favorites!
My Review~
This bakes up beautifully! It came out of the bundt pan very easily after cooling for 10 minutes. I think it is more similar to a moist cake, rather than a dense banana bread. My family does not like nuts in anything (however, I do) so this is going to really please them! It is not a sweet cake at all. I thought it added a bit of sweetness by sprinkling the cake with powdered sugar. There is nothing not to like about this recipe. It was delicious served warm and would be marvelous with fresh summer berries. This is a beautiful recipe to share as most of us are always on the hunt for a new banana bread recipe!

2 sticks Butter
1-½ cup + 2 T. Sugar
3 whole Eggs
1-½ cup Mashed Ripe Bananas
4 cups + 2 T. Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
1-½ cup Sour Cream

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour bundt pan.

Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, beating for a few seconds after each addition. Add mashed bananas and beat.

Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl.

Add dry ingredients and sour cream alternately to the mixing bowl. Beat well until all combined.

Pour into bundt pan and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Invert on a cooling rack and allow cake to cool slightly before slicing and serving with softened butter.





  1. Dear Estelle, That gal Lee is a very yummy cook, I guess that is why she has her own TV show and BLOG LOL
    It was so nice to see your comment, Yes I did have an eye opening time to a few things on my trip!
    This Bannana Bundt looks just delicious my friend....
    I have not used that pan in awhile, but it sure makes a cake look fancy and pretty!
    Your Friend, Roxy

    1. Hi Roxy! I hope you try her recipe. It's probably a great cake (not like a banana bread) to serve for summer days. I hope you enjoy your week! Thank you so much for visiting today!

  2. This looks so good! I have some very ripe banana's waiting in the kitchen so this is going to be a for sure bake tomorrow, thanks! :)

    1. Hi Kim! So good to hear from you! Please let me know what you think of this! I hope your family enjoys it! Ree stated she does not like bananas, so the main reason she liked this bread (which I felt was a cake) was because it had just a hint of banana taste!

  3. I love to watch Ree Drummond, I missed this cake recipe and glad you posted it. Your cake looks soo delicious!!

    1. Hi Betsy! So happy you visited today! I hope you enjoy the recipe love! Hugs to you!

  4. Gotta love Ree... John wanted pancakes for supper last night and he didn't want "heavy." So I made the recipe for her husband's grandmother's pancakes...oh my! Heaven. I think the angels even sang.
    (Page 76 in her first cookbook) Thanks for popping by! It reminded me that you're out here. I don't think I'll forget any time soon.


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
