Banana Bread Snack Cake

I went to visit my friend in Fort Worth a few weeks ago and she made this amazing dish for breakfast!! I asked for the recipe and made it for a work brunch this week!! Before I made it myself I did some reading because I usually have a lot of issues when baking breads!! 

Here are some tips when baking breads:
1) Don't use a mixer, hand stir everything.
2) Use a metal pan, not a glass one. 
3) Give your oven plenty of time to preheat.
4) Cover and bake at a lower temperature if your bread needs to bake longer than the recommended amount of time. 


2/3 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup softened butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 tsp almond extract
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 cups mashed bananas
1 cup sour cream
1 cup white chocolate chips


  1. In a small bowl, combine the almonds and brown sugar. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs. Beat in extract. 
  3. In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add this mixture to the butter/sugar mixture alternately with the bananas and sour cream.
  4. Fold in white chocolate chips. 
  5. Spread in 9 x 13 inch greased metal pan. 
  6. Sprinkle with almond mixture.
  7. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Stick a toothpick into the bread and see if it comes out clean. If it does, awesome you're done!! But I highly doubt your bread will be done that soon, so keep reading. Turn the temperature down to 300, cover the bread with foil, and bake for 5 minute increments until the bread is done. It'll probably take another 10-20 minutes. Be careful not to over bake the bread or it will become to dry.
