I was trying very hard to find something interesting to write on this post but the truth is that after a long week, filled with work, parents meetings, classes, homework, etc. the only thing I wanted to do over the weekend was to bake something comforting and to share it with you.
The result was so good that I decided to replicate it and make it again today with Carla. I found this wonderful recipe at Steamy Kitchen and I’ll leave you with it with just two quick notes. First, I’m not a big banana bread fan but this one is so far the best one I’ve tried! Second, I did not change the recipe at all except for adding butterscotch chocolate chips…just because I have a weakness for butterscotch chocolate chips. We thought the flavor combination was fantastic!
Banana butterscotch chocolate chips bread
260 g (9 oz or 2 cups) all-purpose flour
5 g (1 tsp) baking soda
1 pinch salt
113 gr (1 stick or 1/2 cup) butter, softened
165 g (5.7 oz or 3/4 cup) brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups mashed overripe bananas (about 4 bananas)
150 g (1 cup) butterscotch chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, the baking soda, and the salt.
In another bowl, mix together the butter and the brown sugar until creamy. Stir in the eggs and the mashed bananas until well blended.
Stir the banana mixture into the flour mixture until you obtain a homogenous batter and add the butterscotch chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean.
Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack to finish cooling.
Have a sweet day!
