The best banana bread recipe I have made yet! I doubled the recipe and made 2 loaves; the only change I made was I used 1 extra banana just because it was on hand.
My wife made this for me when I had a training class at work. It was a huge hit with all the guys!
My grandchildren & their mom absolutely loved this.
Emily- My chocolate chips don't fall to the bottom but when I make this, I sift the dry ingredients together and then fold the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. I don't beat them together. It does make a fluffier bread but I wonder if the air in it holds the chips up...
Love this! I didn't have buttermilk so I used whole milk and added a little lemon juice. It's nice and dense so I can give it to the kids and they won't make a crumbly mess! I have a question, though. How do I keep the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom? I tried tossing them with a little flour before mixing them in, but they still all collected in the bottom of the bread.
