Banana Chocolate Chips bread by Angela Seah Thulin

Banana Chocolate chip bread! Very simple to make - basically just 2 steps to make this bread yet it is so moist and fragrant! I was not convinced by my husband's verdict (that it's really good) so i had to ask my mother-in-law for her input. She says she likes it, and felt it wasn't too sweet, just nice. Guess my bananas were ripe but not overly ripe. I was even pondering if i should post this at all as it doesn't look pretty. Well, a good recipe has to be shared. I am not a banana lover but in this case, my husband and I finished half of it right after baking!

Ingredients - 

200g all-purpose flour, sift
1 1/4 tsp baking soda 
1/4 tsp salt 

250g ripe bananas (about 2-3)
3 large eggs 
120g sugar
125g oil
1 tsp vanilla essence 
60ml water
60g chocolate chips
Opt - pecans or walnuts

Steps -
Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius

1. Grease your loaf pan and line with parchment paper.

In a bowl - mix the flour, baking soda and salt together. Set aside.

3. In a mixing bowl - mash your bananas with a fork, add the eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla essence and water in. Use a balloon whisker and whisk them together.

4. Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and salt) in and stir in gently with balloon whisker. Once incorporated, stop. Then add chocolate chips and nuts in and fold gently in one direction.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Let it cool completely, cling wrap it and best to have it next day.

Notes -
1. Use overly ripe bananas are the best. 
2. Cover with aluminum foil when it has browned to your desire color. Mine was covered after 30 minutes.
3. Every oven's temperature varies. I baked mine at 165 degree celsius for 60mins.
