Who doesn’t adore a warm slice of banana bread fresh out of the oven? I love banana bread for SO many reasons. It’s the perfect snack to quickly whip up for last minute company, it’s super easy to make, and it uses most of the ingredients lying around the pantry. Today I am sharing my go-to banana bread recipe. Warning this recipe is NOT healthy, gluten free, or vegan but that’s what makes it taste oh so good!
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar (plus 1/4 cup extra for the crunchy top)
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 chocolate chips
Preheat over to 350F/180C
Cream together butter and sugar
Add eggs and bananas (I use frozen bananas and microwave them for 30 seconds before adding them to the mixing bowl)
Sift flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the creamed mixture.
Add vanilla and mix well
Add chocolate chips and mix well
Pour mixture into greased loaf pan.
To get the crunchy top, take the extra 1/4 cup of brown sugar and gently sprinkle it on top of the batter. Using your fingers, slightly press the sugar into the batter.
Bake for 55 minutes.
The last step is to enjoy! Goes well with a fresh cup of coffee, friends, and laughter.
