This bread is good y'all. Real good. So of course I have to share the goodness.
The recipe is from my girl Martha's Everyday Food Magazine:
Banana Chocolate Bread
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temp
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, room temp
1 1/2 cups mashed overripe bananas (I used 3 bananas)
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped (I used chips)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a 5"x9" bread pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt.
In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until fluffy (3 minutes). Then add eggs, beating after each. Beat in bananas, sour cream, and vanilla. Then beat in your premixed dry ingredients (flour etc) and chocolate. Pour into your pan and bake for 50-60 minutes (all while drooling over the aroma), or until a toothpick stuck into the center comes out clean.
When I first tried it I was kinda like, "mehhh?" because I was expecting it to taste like traditional banana bread (like this). But it doesn't (there's no cinnamon, nutmeg, etc) and after the second bite I was hooked. It's like a chocolate chip cookie, banana, and fluffy muffin had a delicious love
