In the spirit of trying to share a little bit more of my life on the blog I decided to start sharing some of my favorite recipes. This weekend I was able to snap some pictures of one of my families favorite treats.
Lately Hudson is very into bananas. Our last bunch got very ripe very quickly so it was decided that banana bread would be made.
Here is what you’ll need:
-4 ripe bananas
-2 cups of flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon of salt
-1 cup of sugar
-9 tablespoons of butter
-2 cups chocolate chips (You can do less, but I love it full of chips!)
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Here’s what you need to do:
-Preheat over to 350 degrees
-Beat butter and sugar until creamy. I like to melt my butter a little to make this step easier.
-Mix flour, baking powder and salt and add into mixture
-Use a fork to mash up bananas and add them to the mixture along with the vanilla extract.
-Add chocolate chips
-Pam/Butter a loaf pan and add mixture. Bake for 1 hr.
Let cool and then enjoy!
How do you like your banana bread? Fill of chocolate chips? Nuts? Do you toast yours? Add some butter? I like doing all of the above. It’s one of my favorite treats.
