Best Banana Bread
This is seriously the yummiest banana bread I have ever eaten. I absolutely love it! I got the recipe off a blog, but I can't remember which one, and I can't seem to find it. Thankfully it is a recipe I wrote down, because I have tried others since finding this one, but I keep coming back. It's that good!
6 Tbs butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbs sour milk (to make it sour, add a few drops vinegar or lemon juice)
2 over ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour (I use whole wheat pastry, to help it be a little softer)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or more!)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix butter, sugar, egg, and milk until smooth. Add bananas, mix. Add flours, salt, baking powder and soda, mix. Add walnuts and chocolate chips and mix. Fills 12 muffin cups at 1/3 cup batter. Bake about 15 min.
Or, grease loaf pans and bake for 1 hour for one large pan or 45 min for two small pans. Your choice.
I always do sweet breads in muffin form because they just seem easier to eat to me. Less of a hassle and therefore more likely to get eaten than a loaf you have to cut a slice off of every time you want a bite! But, that's probably just me. . .
