- 3 or 4 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
What you’ll need:
- 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan
- Electric mixer or hand mixer
- Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, with oven rack at center level of oven.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Next, in the bowl of your electric mixer (or in a separate large bowl using your hand mixer), add the butter and beat until softened. Then add the sugar and continue to beat for an additional 2-3 minutes, until mixture becomes fluffy. One at a time, add the eggs and allow to beat into mixture thoroughly. Then, beat in the mashed bananas. Scrape down the sides with a spatula as necessary.
Next, add the milk and vanilla extract. Continue to beat the mixture on medium speed until combined. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until well combined. Gently fold the chocolate chips into the batter with a spatula.
Coat entire inside (including walls) of loaf pan with cooking spray to avoid sticking. Pour mixture into pan, and bake in oven until golden on the top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately 55-65 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer pan to a rack and allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes. Then remove the loaf bread from pan and place on rack to cool completely.
