My favorite recipe for banana bread, and one I didn't see here when I searched. Use the best quality butterscotch chips you can find for this. They partially melt into the bread as it bakes, carmelizing slightly, to make a very wonderful bread...actually, much more like a cake. I will also usually add a few tablespoons of chocolate chips, to make it an even better treat. The ingredients halve easily for one loaf. The recipe is from the National Pike Inn, New Market, MD. NOTE: The bread might not rise that much, or brown too much, but it is still wonderful!
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Grease two 8" loaf pans (or spray well with non-stick spray) Cream together the butter or margarine, eggs& sugar (as Kim D suggested, if you add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, the loaf should rise a little better).
- Add the bananas.
- Then add the flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg and blend together.
- Fold in the butterscotch chips (and chocolate chips if desired).
- Divide batter between the two prepared baking pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until firm in the center.
