I’ve always had a secret passion for baking. When I was little being allowed to help my grandma bake was like the biggest thing for me. We still have a bunch of pictures of mini me baking or more like me making a mess. I don’t know what it is about baking. Maybe it’s the way you can put a smile on peoples faces just by mixing together a bunch of ingredients to create a delicious baked goodie. Maybe it’s how even though most of my relatives live pretty far away baking Christmas cookies in December would always reunite everyone when I was still a kid. We’d meet up with my grandparents and my great cousins and just spent an entire day baking. Those were the best times.
Nowadays I still love to bake but unfortunately I don’t have much time and whenever I’m at Uni I don’t really have much ingredients either. Therefore I love to use the chance of being able to bake whenever I’m home. One of my favorite things to bake is Banana Chocolate Chip Bread. I love bananas and I love chocolate. Simple as that.
After trying a piece of banana bread at some garden party I’ve googled a bunch oo recipes ad tried them out. Each time I made banana bread I’ve changed up the recipe and added some of my own ingredients. Now I’ve finally created a recipe, which I’m sticking to because I like my banana bread best this way.
Here’s what you need:
2 cups/ 250g flour
1 teaspoon backing soda
1/2 cup/ 115g butter
3/4 cup/ 110g brown sugar
2 tablespoons of yoghurt
1. Preheat oven to 350 degreez Fahrenheit or 175 degress Celsius
2. Start of by mixingthe flour, baking soda, butter and a pinchof salt.
3. Add sugar, eggs, yoghurt and a tiny bit of milk. You don’t have to add yoghurt but I do because it makes the bread so much lighter and fluffier if you know what I mean.
4. Mash up bananas and add the choclate chip chunks.
5.This step you can skip if you like but I love to add some spices to my banana bread to well spice it uo a little. So what I do is I add a pinch of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. I’ve been experimenting with on this part but I decided that these spices go best with th rest of the recipe. I just told you my secret ingredients so shhhh
6. Bake for about 40min.
Idgie wants a piece as well!
This is an easy and quick recipe, so if you have a thing for bananas and choclate you need to make this!
