I had some bananas that were getting overripe and thought baking banana bread sounded good. I've been seeing lots of recipes for banana bread with chocolate chips so I decided to give it a try! These are fabulous!! I adapted the banana bread recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. My mother-in-law gave these pans to all the ladies in the family a few years back. Each loaf is about the size of 1 1/2- 2 cupcakes. I used two medium cookie scoops of batter for each loaf. Hope you enjoy this recipe! I will definitely be making this one again!
Updated 1/30/2013- Made this recipe again today only made it in a standard loaf pan (see pic below).
adapted from: Better Homes and Gardens cookbook
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. cinnamon
1 cup mashed bananas ( I used 2)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Grease the bottom and sides of loaf pan(s). In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients except chocolate. Mix until just moistened. (Note: I dusted my chocolate chips with about a tsp. of flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of each loaf.) Fold in chocolate chips. Spoon batter into prepared pan(s). For mini-loaves, bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. (If baking one loaf in a regular loaf pan, bake for about 45-50 minutes.)
