For when you just didn't get to those bunch of bananas...if they are brown and soft and you don't have time for this recipe, throw them in the freezer. Just be sure to defrost them before you make the bread. The additional of sour cream makes it EXTRA moist, and the spiced nut topping was inspired by one of my fav @CIAGreystone Instructors, Chef Paul. You may remember him by the now infamous Chef Paul's Mushroom Salad. You can trim the calories and fat in this recipe by using low-fat sour cream and/or a plant-based butter, such as Earth Balance.

Really, you should mix the butter and brown sugar together for at least 3 minutes. The result is this - a light, airy texture that will make your finished bread softer...it's worth the time.
