We had a few very black bananas sitting on the kitchen counter that either needed to be thrown out or used in baking. Banana bread is always easy and tasty, making for a great breakfast or snack. This recipe also includes vanilla and white chocolate to create an extra delicious treat.
If you're not so keen on white chocolate, milk or dark would be just as delicious - or how about triple chocolate? To be completely honest, that's the chocolate of choice here because that's what I had in the cupboard!
Banana, Vanilla, and White Chocolate Bread
Makes 1 loaf
3 large overripe bananas, mashed
1/2 Cup light Greek yogurt
70 g Butter, at room temperature
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup white sugar
2 Eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste, but vanilla essence is fine too!)
2 Cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup white chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (340°F) and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla.
3. Sift the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Fold in the mashed bananas, yogurt, and chocolate chips.
4. Pour into the loaf tin and bake for about 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
