My hair girl shared this recipe for banana bread with me and now I shall share it with you. I'm not sure what makes it so good--the brown sugar, the chocolate chips, or the pecans. I made it last week and the boys gobbled it up in two days. I just bought some more bananas at the store today and I'm ready for them to ripen so I can make it again.
1/2 - 1 cup chocolate chips (use ghirardelli semi-sweet--you can thank me later)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan or muffin tins.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Add chocolate chips and pecans. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes or 20 minutes for muffins, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
I would have included a picture of my bread, but every picture I take of food comes out looking inedible. But there is nothing inedible about this recipe. It's amazing!
