Ingredients:

  • Dry Ingredients:

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Sweet Banana Base:

    • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1 tablespoon milk
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (or to taste)
  • Buttery Bliss:

    • ½ cup butter, softened
  • Sugary Sweetness:

    • 1 cup white sugar
  • Egg Power:

    • 2 eggs
  • Chocolatey Chips:

    • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Prep for Perfection: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C) and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan (glass is preferred for even baking).

  2. Dry Mix Magic: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  3. Sweet Banana Mash: In a separate bowl, mash your ripe bananas and combine them with the milk and ground cinnamon.

  4. Creamy Sugar Dream: Using a hand mixer or electric mixer, cream together the softened butter and sugar in a third bowl until light and fluffy. This step incorporates air into the batter, resulting in a lighter and more tender final product.

  5. Egg by Egg: Add the eggs one at a time to the creamed butter mixture, beating well after each addition. This ensures the eggs are fully incorporated for a smooth batter.

  6. Bringing it Together: Gently stir the banana mixture into the creamed butter mixture. Then, use a spoon or spatula to fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to a tough bread.

  7. Chocolatey Chips: Finally, fold in the chocolate chips until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

  8. Bake and Enjoy!: Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and bake for about 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Now, slice up that warm banana bread, grab a cup of coffee, and savor the deliciousness!
