Banana Bread

We eat a fair bit of home made quick breads around here - zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, lemon bread, and of course banana bread. This is a great recipe - one of those breads that is delicious enough to have for desert (especially when there are chocolate chips on top!) and healthy enough to have for breakfast. Although it has quite a bit of sugar, it also has the most bananas I have been able to find in a recipe. YUM!

Banana Bread:
4 bananas, mashed
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Chocolate chips or nuts (optional)

Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in vanilla and eggs. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Alternate adding mashed bananas and dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips or nuts if desired. Pour into a large greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for approx 1 hour or until a knife inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
