Tasty Tuesday- really REALLY good banana bread!

So over the past few months I’ve been on a search to find the perfect banana bread…and I think I’ve finally found it! If you have a better one send it my way, because I LOVE banana bread!

So after my little monkey went to bed last night I decided I needed to put our spoiled bananas to good use.  I waited so patiently for the muffins to be done… and when the timer finally wen’t off I was sooo excited! I ran and grabbed one mitten and pulled those babies out. I think I was a little too excited, and to my dismay this is where the muffins ended up. It was a sad night. 
LUCKILYYY I had made two extra loaves I had planned on giving away. In case you’re wondering that loaf below was NOT given away & was eaten by me. ;) My husband couldn’t fathom having all those muffins go to the trash, so he salvaged a few muffins and ate them right up!
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter
  • 11/3 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c sour cream
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 c mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 c cinnamon chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar. Then mix in eggs, vanilla and sour cream. In a separate bowl whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to sugar mixture and stir until combined. Fold in bananas, nuts, and chocolate chips. Pour into 2 large loaf pans or 4 small loaf pans. You can also make 24 muffins. Bake for 1 hour in a loaf pan, 35-45 minutes in a small loaf pan or 25 min in a muffin pan. You want the bread to be lightly browned. Make sure it comes clean with a toothpick.
  2. Once the bread is cooked, remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack.
  3. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!

    mmm, my husband LOVES banana bread. I like it, but he could eat it every day and be happy. And I've never made it before. Won't he be excited when I give this one a try…

    Thank you for participating the Creative Therapy session at Life in the Pitts!

    Those muffins looked so sad! But the loaf came out beautiful! I used almost the exact same recipe for my zucchini bread loaf… (In my post).

    That looks great. I've never had chocolate chips in banana nut bread, but what can't be better with those in it?

    It looks really good. I use a similar recipe (buttermilk instead of sour cream), but I never tried adding chocolate chips. I should try that next time. thank you

    So this recipe looked so good I searched to find it again because like a dummy I did not book mark the page. Well I found you again and made these with my daughter Went pick up the loaf pan to put in the oven and totally flipped it right on to the floor. Good thing we doubled the recipe so I still had one more to go in the oven. Ever think the recipe is cursed! ha ha Well the remaining loaf came out perfect and we all gobbled it up! Thanks so much for the recipe.

    Hi, I used your recipe to make muffins today and they are yum!
    How can you go wrong with sour cream and a stick of butter ;)

    Similar recipe to my banana-chocolate chip-mayonnaise muffins! Which, incidentally, happen to be the best thing I've ever ate. I ate ten in one day… I could feel ym serotonin levels increase just THINKING about them!
