Banana Chocolate Nut Bread
You say Bananas- I say Bananas. Why is it? Sometimes the bananas get scarfed up, sometimes they are left to ripen? Well today I had very ripe bananas and on those days when there is a cool fall-ish summer breeze…. I hear the sound of the Banana fairies giggling for me to make banana bread with melting gooey chocolate, it is almost like a cake, but it is called bread. It’s delicious cake bread- not to be confused with my favorite wine and much cheaper….

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups of mashed bananas ( 3 large )
  • 3/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
  • 1/2 cup Ghiradelli 60% semisweet chocolate bar broken up
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 325 F.
  2. Grease loaf pan, with shortening.
  3. Mix sugar, bananas, oil and eggs with a wooden spoon. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into pan.
  4. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean, 60- 70 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes, then loosen sides of loaf pan and remove from pan. Let cool completely before slicing.
  5. Makes 1 loaf.
