Nothing fills your hungry belly quite like a delicious slice of banana bread hot out of the oven. To me, the more moist and chunkier, the better. Have a warm wedge in the morning with your coffee or after dinner with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This recipe is so scrumptiously packed with bananas you may just find yourself screeching wildly and swinging from your chandeliers jungle style. Knock yourself out, my little monkey friend. Been there.
Depending on the size bananas you use and how much you put in (I actually added a bit more) you may need to increase the baking time. Just insert a knife until it comes clean.
Chunky Banana Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups mashed overripe bananas
1 small banana, cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended. Stir banana mixture into flour mixture; stir just to moisten. Fold in banana chunks. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 60 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.
