1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°.  In a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup sugar, pecans, and cinnamon; sprinkle half of mixture in a well-greased 12-cup Bundt pan.  Set remaining mixture aside.

In a large bowl, beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until fluffy; gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, beating 5 to 7 minutes.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until yellow disappears.  Add banana, sour cream, and vanilla, beating at low speed just until blended.

Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt; fold into creamed mixture.  Pour half of batter into prepared pan; sprinkle with remaining pecan mixture.  Top with remaining batter.
