It’s National Banana Day, so of course, I had to make banana bread. Yum!!
2 cups all-purpose flour (280 grams)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted (113 grams)
1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams) You can use brown sugar if you would like:)
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sour cream (57 grams)
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (84 grams) Plus extra to sprinkle on top…this is optional
Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare 9×15 loaf pan with parchment paper and cooking spray.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a medium size bowl and set aside.
Place melted butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream and vanilla in mixing bowl. Place on stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix just until ingredients are combined.
Add flour mixture and mix until combined (do not overmix). Stir in bananas and chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
Pour batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top (optional) and bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
Enjoy! I hope you make this banana bread, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi. I would love to see your pictures:).
