Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Today I made some chocolate chip banana bread loaves. 5 small loaves and 1 medium loaf. I had 9 banana's that needed used. So this was a great idea to use the banana's.
4 1/2 c all purpose flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon (ground)
3 c mashed bananas (9 medium)
2 1/4 c sugar
3/4 c cooking oil
3 tsp finely shredded lemon peel
1 1/2 c chocolate chips
1. Grease the bottom & 1/2 inch up sides of loaf pan; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, & 1/4 tsp salt (optional). Make a well, in the center of dry mixture, set aside.
2. In another bowl combine the egg, bananas, sugar, cooking oil, and lemon peel. Add egg mixture all at once to dry mixture. Stir til just moistened.
3. Spoon batter into the prepared pan. Bake in a 350F oven 30-35 min for mini loaves or 50-60 for regular loaf, til a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 min. Remove loaf from pan. Cool on rack. Wrap in syranrap & store over night before slicing
