What you'll need
3-4 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup melted butter (80 ml)
1 cup sugar (240 ml)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1.5 cups flour (350 ml)
a handful of roughly chopped walnuts
a handful of dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 175°C/350°F. Mash up your ripe bananas (the browner they are, the sweeter they will be). Beat melted butter into banana. Beat sugar, egg and vanilla together until it becomes lighter in colour and slighlty fluffy. Stir in banana and butter mixture. In a separate bowl, sift all dry ingredients (except nuts and chocolate) together and stir into wet mixture until combined. Stir in nuts and chocolate at the end. Grease a loaf pan or line with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 45 minutes to an hour until golden brown on the outside, and a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy. If you like your banana bread to have that sweet, gooey exterior, store in plastic.
