  • Preheat the oven to 350℉.  Spray three 8x5 inch loaf pans with nonstick spray.
  • Use an electric mixer to combine the butter and sugar in a large bowl.  Blend in the eggs, banana, sour cream and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Add to the wet ingredients and mix until incorporated.  Divide the batter between the prepared pans.
  • Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Watch the tops while baking, and place a piece of foil on top of the loaves if they are getting too brown.
  • Let the loaves cool a bit, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
