Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

~ Posted on Thursday, December 6, 2012 at 7:07 AM ~

I first tried this recipe a few months back after seeing some leftover very ripe bananas on our kitchen counter and I decided to bake a banana bread. Turns out hubby likes it so much and asked why I never bake this before... oh wow, I don't know he is a big fan of banana bread... I baked it few more times since then, and the previous baking was sampled by my sister in law and her daughter who commented it is so delicious (I still don't believe them though!).

Just yesterday, hubby told me he bought some bananas and mentioned ever so gently (aka hinting) that I could use the bananas to make banana bread. Oh-kay... I get the hint, man!

Now I am so sorry I can't find back the original source for this recipe but oh well, for my 4th attempt today, I've tweaked it to include chocolate chips in the banana bread and since my best buddy's boyfriend commented the other day that I have not been posting recipes stuff on my blog for some time now, I think it's high time I slot in a recipe post in my blog now hahaha... So here it goes:


* 20 minutes to prepare the mixture
* 5 minutes to pre-heat the oven
* 1 hour for baking process

Ingredients / Tool Required:

* 4 Bananas; peeled (I sliced them to about 1/3 inch in thickness)
* 1 cup Sugar
* 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla 
* 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking Powder 
* 2 Eggs 
* 1/4 cup Butter
* 2 cups Flour  (I used wheat flour)
* 1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
* Chocolate chips (up to you how much you want to put in!)

What to Do?

* Sliced the bananas based on your preferance, you can also mash bananas with fork until smooth but I prefer ours to have the bananas chunks ;)
* Combine with all other ingredients and mix until smooth.
* Pour into a large greased loaf pan (I use olive oil to grease the loaf pan)


* Pre-heat oven at 180℃ (about 5 minutes)
* Bake for 1 hour. 




"Wow! The crust is a bit hard but then the crunchiness gives the bread some oomphff! The color is a bit too chocolatey since this time I added chocolate chips but overall, not bad!"
"Mmmm somemoreeeeeee!"
"MMmmmm... Taste like fruit cake!"
