Banana Bread Recipe

I woke up this morning to a dreary, rainy and cold day and since I had a few old bananas kicking around I decided to bake some banana bread for breakfast. I must say that there are few better things than warming up the house with the comfort of banana bread. And the best part is that it makes the house smell wonderful all day long! Here is the recipe I used in case you might like to do the same! Enjoy!


    2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose_flour
    1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated_sugar
    2 tsp (10 mL) baking_powder
    1 tsp (5 mL) baking_soda
    Pinch salt
    1 cup (250 mL) chocolate chips
    2 cups (500 mL) mashed ripe bananas
    1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, melted 
    1/4 cup (50 mL) milk
    2 eggs


In large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt ; add chocolate chips. In separate bowl, whisk together bananas, butter, milk and eggs; pour over flour mixture and stir just until blended. Spread in greased 9- x 5-inch (2 L) loaf pan.

Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean. Let cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes. Turn out onto rack; let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days or overwrap with heavy-duty foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
