1 tsp. baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease an 8 inch by 4 inch loaf pan.

With a hand or stand up mixer, beat butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla in a bowl until creamy.

Add the mashed bananas and mix well. Add the sour cream and mix in.

In another bowl, mix together the chopped walnuts, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and flour until combined.
