The best Banana Bread Recipe I have ever had.

May 12, 2010

Last night, my best friend Meg came over whilst our significant others wailed on instruments at their weekly practice.  I had some soon to be dead bananas and thought I should make a banana bread.  Charlie, my husband, found me this wonderful recipe on, of all things, About.com.  It’s perfect, not too sweet, and it has chocolate chips.  Who could ask for more, really?

Here is the link to the recipe:  http://southernfood.about.com/od/bananabread/r/bl30322m.htm

Your ingredients are:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 ounces butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

And, of course, I documented it for your viewing pleasure…

Step one:  Cream butter and sugar very well.

Mixed with old hand mixer, works the best. You will surely sprain something if you did it by hand.

Step two: Mix, in a separate bowl, your eggs, banana and vanilla.  Add in to creamed butter and sugar.

Looks gross, but will end up tasting like a little slice of heaven.

Step 3:  Mix, in a separate bowl, your dry ingredients.  Whisk together very well and add to wet mixture.

Mmmmm...chocolate.

Step four: Bake in loaf pan for 30 minutes covered in tin foil.  Uncover and bake for 30-45 minutes longer, depending on altitude, humidity, and whatnot.

This stuff WILL rise and stick to the tin foil. It's okay, don't freak out and cry or anything.

Step five:  Eat half of it with your best friend while watching a PBS special before your husband gets home.

Don't judge me.

And THAT, my friends is how you make a delicious banana bread.
