Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips Recipe – perfect for breakfast or a lunchbox treat. The addition of the chocolate chips adds a touch of indulgence.
It was on our first anniversary together that M surprised me with our Kitchen Aid ( Yup, big time brownie points). It is by far one of the most amazing kitchen gadgets one can have – it truly makes light work of any mixing. So when I first had it in the kitchen, with all that excitement, I went on a cupcake baking spree, it was a glorious phase of churning out red velvet cupcakes with perfect cream cheese frosting. But eventually, since both of us hardly have a sweet tooth, the frequency reduced drastically. Until all activity came to a grinding halt ( it pains me even to write that).
Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips
- 4 Bananas (ripe)
- 1/2 cup chocolate Hersheys Chips - (I used semi sweet)
- 2 Eggs
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup caster sugar
- 125 gms butter - (room temperature)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat the oven to 180xb0C.
Mash the ripe bananas - I prefer them left slightly chunky for added texture.
Mix together the flour, baking soda and caster sugar.
Once the dry ingredients are mixed well, add in the bananas, eggs, vanilla essence, butter and chocolates and fold nicely.
Line the loaf tin with baking paper and pour in the batter. Bake for about 75 minutes.
Test to make sure the tooth pick comes out clean from the centre of the bread. Cool and slice. Note: Make sure all your baking ingredients are at room temperature for best results.
