When you write a food blog, you tend to read a lot of food blogs. Amanda at i am baker is one of my favorites. First of all, the woman is amazingly talented. Her cookies and cakes are beyond gorgeous and she oozes creativity. On top of that, she is hysterically funny. Recently she has been posting vlogs and they make me laugh very, very, hard. The other day, she posted this banana bread recipe and I had bananas laying around and three kids that wanted to bake something. Amanda calls it cake, but it makes me feel better to serve it for breakfast to my children when it is called bread.
This bread is moist and the white chocolate chips melt into the cake bread leaving behind this caramelized taste that is amazing. Obviously you could leave out the white chocolate chips, but why would you? The brown sugar gives a bit of depth and this will now be my go-to banana cake bread recipe.
1 stick butter room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups mashed overripe bananas
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups white chocolate chips
Like all good things, this starts with creaming the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
While your butter is creaming, mash the bananas.
Mash until you get bored. Does not take long when you are 6.
Add the banana mixture to the mixer.
Quality control at work.
Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until well blended.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until well blended.
Butter a loaf pan and make sure the oven is preheated to 350 degrees.
Add the white chocolate chips to the batter.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Where did those chippies go? Bake the bread for 60-65 minutes.
Meanwhile, blow up Daddy on Mommy’s stolen phone. It is hard to be mad at this little nugget for pilfering my phone when he is this cute.
After about an hour, you will have this gorgeous loaf cooling on a rack.
Ready to slice and eat.
Thanks Amanda for this recipe. If you need some inspiration and a dose of creativity, read her blog. I still cannot figure out how she gets the surprises inside the cakes.
