Guessing 1/2 cup as that is what my recipe calls for and it is nearly identical. Hope that helps Half Baked.

Sorry - and yes, Alix is right.

I made another one of these today and did something I normally do on my poppyseed bunt cake:

Rather than the typical greased/floured pan, I greased it with butter but then "floured" it with cinnamon sugar. The end result? A darker, crunchy-sweet crust. Yum!

If you substitute buttermilk for sour cream is there any adjustment in amount?

I made this and it is wonderful. Easy and the bundt cake look is just more frilly then a plain loaf. Thank you for sharing this. I used 3/4 cup buttermilk in place of sour cream.

Best Banana Bundt

Cream together:
1 cube softened butter
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 c. sour cream

Blend in:
1-1/4 c. mashed bananas (3)
2 tsp. lemon juice (sprinkled over bananas)
1 tsp. vanilla

Add dry ingredients and mix well:
2-1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Stir in:
3/4 c. finely chopped pecans

Pour batter into greased floured bundt pan. Bake @ 325 for 50-60 minutes
or till toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. This actually tastes best
on the second day.
This looks easy ...just one thing how much is 1 stick of butter we in Asia dont usually say stick ..grams or cup ..

happy actors

jkath--

I made your cake for our local community theatre group (who put on great shows, work their tails off, and get paid no $!) and they loved it. I used your idea of the cinn/sugar crusty coating and topped it w/ a bourbon glaze.

You made a lot of people happy that day!

marajo - how was it with buttermilk? I bet yummy!

beehidsu: 1 stick = 1/2 cup

devora - I'm so glad I could be of service! I think the addition of a burbon glaze is pure genius.

JoAnn - you won't be disappointed (unless of course, you wanted a strenuous, time-consuming, too-many-pans-to-wash kind of recipe)
