BANANA CHOCOCHIP BREAD
Banana breads, are just so versatile. Everyone who like their banana bread, have their own preference in taste. So, every recipe you come across will definitely be different. Such as using Whole wheat flour, Whole grain flour, yoghurt, butter, nuts like pecans, walnuts and so many more. This recipe of banana bread is just one simple humble version, with my mandatory ingredient, CHOCOLATE.In this recipe, the banana bread is moist, a little tender, and packed with cinnamon banana and chocochips.
So Let see what goes into
- Mashed Ripe bananas– Bananas have to be super ripe, to be able to mash well. else we will find chunks in the bread. which we do not want
- all purpose flour – just simple plain flour
- vegetable oil – for fat.
- brown sugar – for the moistness and the colour
- cinnamon for a warm toasty flavour
- baking soda and baking powder – because we need leavening agent and to add a little tenderness to the bread.
- Chocolate chips or chocolate chunks – banana and chocolate is a lovely pair
TOOLS WE NEED
- 2 bowls medium large
- electric beater or whisk ( prefer electric beater here)
- loaf pan – 9”x5”
- non stick spray
