Yummy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
So I recently tried this recipe with a little twist of my own, and it was delicious. If you are the type to dislike a strong banana taste DON'T worry, the combination of banana and chocolate chips are just amazing. Yet don't be fooled by the title, this is more of a cake than a bread which is fully pareve and its Bracha is Mezonot.
2 cups - all purpose flour
1 tsp - baking soda
1/2 tsp - salt
1/2 cup - margarine, room temperature (this is to keep the recipe parve if you would like to make it dairy you may use butte)
1 cup - sugar
2 - large eggs
1 cup - almond milk (again if you would like to make this recipe dairy swap it for regular milk)
1 tsp - vanilla extract
3 - ripe bananas, mashed (for best results mash with a masher)
Handful - chocolate chips (or as much as you would like)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease a loaf pan and set it aside.
Sift your flour and then in a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set it aside. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the margarine. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, almond milk, and vanilla extract and mix. Add the mashed banana and mix. Add the flour mixture and beat just until smooth. Then add in the chocolate chips and mix some more.
Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, between 50-60 minutes. Allow the banana bread to cool before removing it from the pan.
