For the banana bread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat to incorporate.
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add in to the butter mixture until just combined.
Add bananas, sour cream and vanilla. Once combined, pour into the prepared loaf pan.
Bake until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
