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
1 ½ Cups (225 g) All-Purpose Flour
¾ tsp Baking Powder
¼ tsp Fine Sea Salt
½ tsp Baking Soda
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
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.
