My Favorite Banana Bread Recipe

Hi darlins'! It's great to see ya here!

It's been awhile since I've joined in on What I Ate Wednesday, mainly because I've been traveling and eating a lot of leftovers and haven't been very good about documenting said eats... oops.

On top of that, the minimal amount of cooking I have been doing has been just been boring, simple comfort food so I wasn't too inspired to share.

HOWEVER, now that we're back to a somewhat normal routine of cooking on our own again, I have a scrumptious recipe from yesterday to share! I give you... my ultimate favorite banana bread recipe, courtesy of my big sister!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

How to Make It:
Cream Together:
3/4 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar

Mix Below Dry and Add Alternately with 1/2 c. butter milk or sour milk*:
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

Mix and Add:
1 1/2 c. (about 3) mashed bananas (black is best!)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 c. chocolate chips

*if you don't have buttermilk, sour milk is 1/2 c. milk with 1/5 Tbsp. of white vinegar

Pour into greased and floured 9x5x3 loaf pan and bake at 325F for 1 hour+ until knife comes out clean. Let cool & enjoy!


In the spirit of WIAW, my other eats yesterday included...

Breakfast: Eggs at the office, complete with a sprig of rosemary from my tree!
Morning & Afternoon Snacks: small handfuls of roasted & salted almonds (i'm addicted)
Lunch [not pictured]: a small mixed plate of chicken, cheesy potatoes, green beans, fruit and salad at my office's annual ladies' luncheon with a mini brownie, oatmeal cookies & cannoli for dessert -- talk about a fabulous food coma!

Dinner: a deeeeeelicious plate of true southern BBQ at Edley's Bar-B-Que!
Dessert: Southern craft cans... because I can :)

Thanks for reading y'all and have a happy Wednesday! Be sure to check out everybody's drool-worthy eats & Jenn's fabulous recipes over at Peas & Crayons!

What kinds of special add-ins do you like in your banana bread? chocolate chips are the beeeest!

  1. I definitely think chocolate + bread = amazing combination. I put banana chips in mine once but they lost the sort of crispy texture, so I wouldn't exactly recommend it :)
