This recipe is a family favorite. My husband and kids love it warmed up for breakfast with a cup of cold milk. This tea bread is also a great snack or dessert.

1 1/2 c. sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. sour cream or 1/4 c. buttermilk
1 c. ripe bananas, mashed (about 3 medium sized bananas)
Several handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, about 2 cups (3-5 handfuls depending on how chocolaty you like it!)
Preheat oven to 350° F. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add sour cream or buttermilk, and blend together with an electric mixer (or by hand) for 1-1 1/2 minutes. Add mashed bananas to the mixture and then add flour mixture. Mix thoroughly. Add several handfuls of the chocolate morsels and mix in gently for about 60 seconds. Fill 2 greased and floured loaf pans about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Bake 30-35 minutes.

  • Easy and delicious

  • Everyone who eats this bread loves it. It's addictive. The best part is it is very easy to make. I usually double the recipe.

  • Very good

  • Make sure the oven is calibrated. You may have to cook a few minutes longer than recommended because it was uncooked in the center of the loaf pan.
