The batter for her easy-to-make favorite is enriched with sour cream, which gives it a subtle tang and super moist texture. Be sure to use really ripe but not bruised bananas and add chopped walnuts or pecans—Martha always goes with pecans. She says your family will "go bananas" for this old-fashioned quick bread.
