For breakfast. . .with whipped cream. . .before going to the gym. . .and i wonder why i don't lose weight. . .*sigh*
i used a recipe similar to the one below from Barbara Bakes. Mine was from an old church cookbook. Delicious on its own, but so many possibilities! Toast a slice and spread with peanut butter. Or use a slice to make French Toast. omigoodness.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sour cream
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coarsely smashed (chunky) very ripe banana (about 3 small)
1 6 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chunks
1 cup walnuts, toasted, cooled, chopped
Preheat oven to 350º (325o for metal pan)
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Cream the sugar and butter. Add sour cream, eggs and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; beat until well blended. Stir in bananas. Add flour mixture to banana mixture, stirring just until moistened. Mix in chocolate chunks and nuts.
Spoon batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 3-inch loaf pan coated with baking spray with flour. Bake for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan, and cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.
