I made this last night and it is very good banana bread! This makes a large loaf that bakes up high to a rich golden brown. Perfect!! It took mine about 65-70 minutes. I let it cool for about 1/2 hour before slicing into it and it was so good still warm and fresh from the oven. I refrigerated it overnight and had another piece of it today and it's just as good the next day. I think 1/2 cup of sugar is plenty. I may even cut it down slighty next time because between the choc. chips and the banana it's plenty sweet for my tastes. Delicious! I will definately make this one again. Thank's for sharing!!
Excellent! Very moist. Was intrigued by the instructions to let the batter set before baking it. I definitely think it made for a higher, lighter banana bread. Kids thought it was great.
I made this for my family. It is very easy to make and tastes wonderful. My husband who does not like banana bread loves this one. I am highly allergic to nuts so I used unsalted sunflower seeds instead of walnuts. They are so small you do not have to dice them and my husband said they taste just like regular nuts in the bread. I did not have a bread pan so I used my bundt pan and it works perfectly. If you want a little extra chocolate on it soften up some Chocolate icing (microwave in a bowl for 10 seconds or less) and lightly drizzle it over the bread or use a regular glaze. I think it's sweet enough without the glaze but sometimes my kids like a little extra for a treat.
I've made this bread many times now, and each time it comes out better than the last. I combine it differently than instructed, however, and have found that beating the sugar with the softened butter then beating in the eggs works very well. I add the vanilla at that time too. I then sift in all the dry ingredients, folding it into the egg, butter & sugar mixture, then adding the mashed bananas, nuts and chocolate chips. I also like to top the bread with baker-cut ginger chips (the company, Ginger People, sells these tiny bits of ginger). It makes for a sweet/tangy crusty topping. All in all, I just love this recipe!
Delish Banana Bread!! I did add 2 TBS of Half and Half to the batter. Thank you for this recipe. Added bonus, my house smells so good!
This bread baked up nice and high and had a lovely light color to it. I waited until the next day to eat it and it tasted awesome! very moist! And a cinch to throw together! Thanks for sharing! =)
Very Good. I first creamed the butter and sugar in a food processor, then added the eggs, bananas, vanilla processed then add the dry ingredients just to mix in. I used peanut butter and chocolate chips. After baking I poured some banana rum over it and let it soak in. Thanks!
It was delish...I did add 1/4 cup additional sugar and 1/4 tsp salt. Everyone loved it!
