If you know me (Vero), you probably know about my sweet tooth. I love all cakes and pastries, and they are probably my biggest weakness. I always have room for dessert! Growing up, my mom's favourite thing to bake was Pound Cake, which is probably what started my obsessions with all rectangular shaped cake/bread, haha! Today, I'm sharing my favourite Banana Chocolate Chip bread recipe.
Honestly, the secret of a bomb banana bread is in the chocolate chips. You just have to put a lot!!! It is also Alvin's favourite part, so I am always very generous.
I usually bake my loaf bread for exactly 65 minutes, and it always comes out perfectly cooked. But if you're baking it for the first time, start checking at 55 minutes with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out with batter on it, it's not ready.
For the bananas, I usually freeze them when we don't eat them on time. When time comes for a banana bread, I just unfreeze them in a bowl of water.
Don't forget to let your banana bread cool down for about 10 minutes before indulging in the most yummy banana bread!
