Sour cream makes everything better. I really believe that! It makes things moist & creamy, so I tend to add it to a lot of things. Today’s recipe is a super moist banana bread, with blueberries, because they pair well together. If you are making banana bread & want more than just the typical banana bread or cake, then try this bread. My son scarfed it down, & I may or may not have had more than my fair share. Plus the flavors are so light & fruity that it’s a great to lighten your mood for Spring.
