In university my sister would bake this amazing banana bread recipe she found on allrecipes.com and I could never get enough of it! Once I started full time work I turned to baking as stress reliever and started baking this recipe. I quickly realized after bringing in the banana bread to the office that it was something everyone loved to eat (no matter what diet you’re on!). This recipe is super easy, extremely moist, and super delicious. I always have people asking for me to bake this banana bread again (must be b/c of all the chocolate chips I sneak in) :P
Trust me this recipe is one to file away in your baking drawers for life!
Parting words that one of my co workers said after partaking in eating the banana bread:
‘Ohh Emm Geee, that banana bread is RIDICULOUS!!!!! It makes my heart smile and stomach dance to some crazy 90s music.”
Recipe (2 one pound loafs)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups mashed overripe bananas
4 eggs, beaten
as many chocolate chips as you want!
1 cup chopped walnut (optional)
PREHEAT: oven to 350 F
COMBINE: Sift the flour, salt and baking soda into a large bowl.
CREAM: together the butter or margarine and sugar until smooth. Mash up the ripe bananas to make 2 cups. Stir in the bananas, eggs, and walnuts (optional) until well blended.
CREAM: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry mixture, then add in some chocolate chips and stir just until blended. Divide the batter evenly between the two (9×5″) loaf pans. Top the batter with extra chocolate chips and/or chopped walnuts.
BAKE: for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until a knife inserted into the crown of the loaf comes out clean. Let the loaves cool in the pans for at least 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack, and cool completely.
