There are so many wonderful reasons to love fall...the crisp air, the changing colors, and my very favorite....baking! Oh, how do I love to bake! Homemade cookies, cakes, breads oh, my! I have been making this Banana Bread recipe for over 10 years now, and still think it is the best! Everytime I try another recipe I just wonder why, as if I am somehow cheating on my tried and true!
3 overripe banana's
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and egg.
Melt butter and add it to the bowl, stir until just mixed.
Pour into a greased loaf pan. Sprinkle on chocolate chips. Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Note: I have made this with only 2 bananas if that is all I have in the house and it turns out just fine.
