Church Pat of the Manor’s Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs at room temperature
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Prehat the oven to 350 degrees, spray cooking oil to coat bottom of a 9x5x3 inch bread pan, then lightly dust the pan with flour and tap out the excess.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients except the sugar.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until well blended. One at a time, add the eggs, beating well with a fork (I will be using a mixer) after each addition. Stir in the bananas, milk, and vanilla until well combined.

Stir in the flour mixture just until blended. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scrape batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.

Bake for 45-55 minutes or until you test with a knife in the center of the bread and it comes out clean.

Remove to a wire rack, cool at least 10 minutes before removing the bread from the pan, and then finish cooling on the rack.

Bon Appetite!
