Banana Bread

We got this recipe from Ria.

(We have to do our prep on the stove because we just don't have counter space enough to fit the two of us and all the baking stuff, just in case you are wondering.)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream 2 tbsp butter and 1 cup brown/raw sugar together. (Judith cooking tip: anything creative is best done without pants!)

Add 1 beaten egg and mix.

(You're not technically supposed to eat the batter after the eggs are added, but Judith insists that it will not make her sick, it will make her happy! P.S. please disregard the recycling in the background)

Add 3 mashed bananas, one at a time.

Or, if you are Judith, add all bananas in whole form all at once and make Mommy mash them all into the batter...

Add 1 tsp. baking soda, and 1 tsp. baking powder.

Add 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour, mix.

Add 2 tbsp. milk (we used soy milk).

Mix well! Look at the intensity on that face!

We added 1 cup of chocolate chips!

Ta da!

Just to make sure it's perfect...

The final product! (We added pecans to the top after pouring the batter into the loaf pan, you could use walnuts as well.) Bake 35-45 minutes. I think I might buy another loaf pan, and make a double batch next time. We made this in the late afternoon, and it didn't live past supper...

This banana bread tasted REALLY GOOD, and didn't even need to be eaten with butter! It wasn't as dry as most banana bread I've had.
