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 or Chocolate Chips


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


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.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
