Just add…

Sometimes I think my dad buys so many bananas just so I will make him banana bread.

Which is perfectly alright.

Who doesn’t need more chocolate chip banana nut bread in their life?

That’s what I thought.

banana + eggs + oil + vanilla

This time I had a kitchen helper; the artiste brother chopped pecans for me.  They were lovely.

Banana Bread

2   cups mashed banana (about 4-5 very ripe bananas)

3   eggs

1   cup oil

1   teaspoon vanilla

2   cups flour

1   cup sugar

1   teaspoon baking soda

1/4   teaspoon salt

1   generous cup chocolate chips

1   cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350°

Mix banana, eggs, oil, and vanilla in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.

Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt; then stir into the banana mixture.  Add chocolate chips and pecans, stir to distribute evenly.

Pour batter into two 9 x 5 loaf pans, greased and lined with parchment paper.  Bake 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

Remove from pans and let cool on rack.
