Banana chocolate chip

Bananas are a fruit that I can't get enough of and it makes me wonder why some people don't like the taste of bananas. What's even better is baking using overripe bananas.

This is a recipe that I have done more than once and will definitely be doing over and over again. I love how the kitchen smells of banana! :D The mini ones are for taste testing and housemates. *evil smirk*

Banana bread. Banana cake. Call it whatever you want.

Ingredients: (Makes 2 loaves)
  • Melted butter, to grease
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 100g milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 mashed ripe banana
  • 1 cup milk
  • 100g butter, melted
  • 2 eggs, lightly whisked
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush two 9 x 19cm (base measurement) loaf pans with melted butter to lightly grease.
  2. Place the flour, chocolate bits, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined.
  3. Combine the banana, milk, butter and eggs in a medium bowl. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  4. Pour mixture evenly among prepared pans and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean.

Banana and chocolate is a match made in heaven. I hope you'll love this as much as I do. :D

On a side note, I thought I'd throw in a picture of the most mutated strawberry I've seen in my life.

Do you have a mutated strawberry picture to share?
