    Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 bananas, blackened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chip

    How to make it

  1. 1. STEP

    Cream butter and sugar (by hand or mixer).

  2. 2. STEP

    Mash bananas and add by hand to creamed mixture.

  3. 3. STEP

    By hand add eggs, vanilla, baking soda, flour and salt.

  4. 4. STEP

    Gently stir in buttermilk and chocolate chips.

  5. 5. STEP

    Pour into a greased loaf pan.

  6. 6. STEP

    Bake at 350°F for 1 1/4 hour or until it tests done with a toothpick.

  7. 7. STEP

    **I find that coarsely mashing bananas is best and make sure they are over ripe for best flavor.

  8. 8. STEP

    I also find that doing the majority of the mixing by hand makes for better texture in the end.

  9. 9. STEP

    **Even though the recipe says it makes 1 loaf, I usually use 2 loaf pans or 3 mini loaf pans because it seems to yield a moister bread.

  10. 10. STEP

    Just adjust baking time down.

  11. 11. STEP

    **if you do not have buttermilk you can put 1 teaspoons vinegar into a 1/2 cup measuring cup and fill to top with milk.

  12. 12. STEP

    Let rest 5 minutes before adding to recipe.

  13. 13. STEP

    **This freezes well.
