It never fails, the transitioning weather from Summer to Fall always gives me the itch to start baking again. This recipe was given to me by a sweet friend of mine from nursing school. One day, she showed up to class with this yummy loaf of bread and I stalked her until she emailed me the recipe. It has become one of my go-to recipes when I want a quick and easy, yet satisfying baked bread.
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
1 cup granulated sugar
4 oz. butter
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Beat in the bananas, eggs, and vanilla.
In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients. Stir dry ingredients into first mixture just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour batter into greased and floured 9x5x3 loaf pan and cover with aluminum (make a tent to allow room for rising).
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 30-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
