Jewel Box Banana Bread

A relative gave me this tasty recipe years ago. Candied fruit will appear in the stores late November for the holdiays.

Jewel Box Banana Bread


1-3/4c sifted flour
2-3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c butter
1/2 c sour cream
2/3 c sugar
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 bananas, mashed (1-1/2 c)
1/2 can candied fruit
Nuts (optional)

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.  Beat butter until light. Gradually add sugar and cream until fluffy. Add eggs, beat well. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with bananas. Blend thoroughly after each addition. Fold in rest of ingredients.
Pour batter into a loaf pan (grease bottom ONLY). Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Turn out on rack. Cool before cutting.
