Hey Sarah, you've got me wondering something right now. Your "how do u make it?" is throwing me. Have you not heard of banana bread before, or do you just mean you want the recipe I usually make?

My index card with my Mom's recipe is missing, probably somewhere on this desk, under my disheveled and copious notes.

Feeling like a doofus, I found you an equally yummy recipe though.


Do you like muffins? If so, prepare to get your socks knocked off.

Here are my Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins.

Makes 12

2 cups AP flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
7 oz semisweet chocolate chips
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup melted butter
8 oz overripe bananas, mashed well. (I have two bananas written down on the side of my card.)


In a large stainless or glass bowl, combine the flour, sugar, powder, soda, and 1/2 the chips.

In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, butter, milk, and bananas together.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet stuff. Stir with a wooden spoon till it just comes together. You want lumps.

With a size 20 batter disher (3 T), plop a scoop in your muffin cups lined with paper wrappers. Drizzle the remaining chocolate chips on top and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or so..... or until they are done. Ya know, toothpick in the middle, comes out clean, something like that.



I hope this works for you. I hope you have old bananas around too. If not, get enough bananas for two recipes later in the week and I swear to God I will have my Mom's Banana Bread for you by then.

Sorry,
RJ
