Set bananas & flour aside. Combine butter & sugar in a large bowl & cream on medium speed until smooth. Add eggs, sour cream & vanilla & mix until thoroughly blended. Add the flour mixture, 1 cup at a time, mixing on low speed. Stir in bananas, so as not to overmix. Pour batter in pans. Bake 9" pans 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in middle of cake comes out clean. If making 1/2 sheet pan, bake 45 min., or until toothpick inserted in middle of cake comes out clean. Remove from oven when done & allow to cool 15-20 minutes. To remove cake from pan, run knife or metal spatula along sides of pan. Turn cake out onto cooling rack & remove parchment paper from bottom. Allow to cool completly before icing. This cake tastes even better the next day!
