BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP BREAD

I know you might not think you need another banana bread recipe but trust me you do. My 10 and 12 year old kids have made this more times than I can count all by themselves.Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

WHAT MAKES THIS BREAD SPECIAL?

  • It is so moist. No dry bread here.
  • Makes one loaf. A large loaf. Most banana bread recipes make three loaves.
  • Has simple ingredients. I love this banana bread recipe but it calls for crushed pineapple and applesauce which I don’t always have on hand.

MY BREAD SUNK IN THE MIDDLE

This is caused from underbaking the bread or overmixing the batter.banana bread batter

  • To prevent this, check with a toothpick to see if the center comes out clean. If it doesn’t keep baking and cover with aluminum foil so that it doesn’t brown too much.
  • Don’t overmix. This cause the batter to get air in it and then it deflates and sinks in the middle.Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/3 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan or line with parchment paper.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside. Beat sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in bananas and milk. Mix in flour mixture until just blended. Fold in chocolate chips (saving a few for the top) and pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 60-70 minutes, covering with aluminum foil if getting too brown at the end. Cool in the pan for a little bit before slicing.
