Yep. I'm ADAPTING things, folks.
Kiiind of a big deal.
When friends Nic and Rob came to visit last week, they left an army of 5 bananas behind. I have commitment issues to eating a whole banana, so they just sat there.
And sat there.
Until I checked the clock.
BANANA BREAD TIME!
I adapted this a little bit. I only had whole wheat, so I didnt mix with regular flour. I used all 5 of my bananas, instead of the 3 in the recipe, I didn't have buttermilk, so I tossed some sour cream in there, and I added CHOCOLATE. Because I had it. Duh.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 5 mashed bananas
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 1/2 bar dark chocolate, chopped
Fold in chocolate until just mixed.
Transfer the batter to the prepared loaf pan. Bake for about 60 minutes (I went to 70 mins. I think the extra banana is probably to blame), until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
