Banana Cake

Dorie Greenspan's Banana Cake

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 oz unsalted butter
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs, preferably at room temperature
 4 very ripe banana, mashed 
1 cup sour cream

Preheat the oven to 170C. 
Generously butter a 12 cup Bundt pan.
Whisk together the flour, soda, and salt.
Beat the butter in a large bowl, until creamy. 
Add the sugar and beat at medium speed until pale and fluffy. 
Beat in the vanilla, then add the eggs one at a time, beating for 1 minute after each addition. 
Reduce mixer speed to low and mix in the bananas. 
Finally mix in half of the dry ingredients, all the sour cream and then the rest of the dry ingredients. Scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the top.
Bake for 50 minutes, or until a metal skewer inserted deep into the center of the cake comes out clean.  
Transfer the cake to a rack and cool for 10 minutes before unmolding onto the rack to cool to room temperature.
