Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
By: Aileen Anastacio
Serves 8 to 10 Prep Time 10 minutes Baking Time 40 minutes

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup corn oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1  Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.

2  Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Stir to mix.

3  In another bowl, combine sugar and corn oil. Add eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla and mashed bananas.

4  Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture. Stir until combined. Lastly, add the chocolate chips and mix just until combined. Pour mixture into the loaf pan.

5  Bake for about 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with just a few crumbs clinging to it. Remove bread from the oven then allow to cool for about 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Cool for another 15 minutes on a wire rack before serving.

Sugar tip Use the darkest brown sugar you can find in the market. The darker the sugar, the richer the color of the banana bread.
