Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips


Here's my family's favorite Banana Bread. I'd like to share this quick and easy recipe with you this evening. The bread tastes so good as it also contains a small splash of rum and lots of melted chocolate chips in it. Yummy!


Banana Bread With Chocolate Chips

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients
1 ½ Cups (225 g) All-Purpose Flour
¾ tsp Baking Powder

¼ tsp Fine Sea Salt

½ tsp Baking Soda

Wet Ingredients
3 Ripe Bananas (about 635 g/yield 440 g)

½ Cup (80 g) Light Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup (75 g) Unsalted Butter, melted
1 Tbsp Dark Rum
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Large Eggs

3 Tbsp Plain Yogurt
½ Cup (100 g) Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, melted

Method



Preheat the oven to 350˚F/180˚C. (Middle rack)



Butter an 8.5 x 5–inch loaf pan.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, sea salt and baking soda.



Mash the bananas in a large bowl. Then mix in sugar, melted butter, rum, vanilla, egg, and yogurt with a rubber spatula. Lightly fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combines. Pour in the melted chocolate, and fold into the banana mixture, about 5 gentle folds. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until the top of the bread is golden brown and springs back when you press it in the middle. Place on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes, and then remove the bread from the pan. Let cool completely before serving.
