Saturday started with bright warm sunshine.
It shone a steady stream of light through the windows.
These days call for crackling wood stove fires.
And freshly baked bread.
Chocolate Chip and Walnut Banana Bread
- 3 ripe bananas, mashed
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a loaf pan with butter.
Combine mashed bananas, melted butter, sugar and eggs in a medium sized bowl. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix ingredients until fully incorporated. Fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips, (leaving out a handful of each to sprinkle over the top). Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining nuts and chocolate chips over the top.
Bake for 50-55minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Enjoy your weekend!
