Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

This bread is awesome--it's one of our favorites at the bed & breakfast - you'll love it, mainly because "Chocolate Rules." Yum Yum !!

1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 large bananas will do)
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, spray cooking oil (you can use butter) to
coat the bottom of a 9 x 5 x 3 inch bread pan, then lightly dust the pan
with flour and tap out the excess. Next, in a large bowl, stir together
flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, cream
together the butter and sugar until blended. One at a time, add eggs,
beating well with a fork after each addition. Stir in bananas, milk and
vanilla until combined. Stir in flour mixture just until blended. Stir the
chocolate chips. Scrape batter into a prepared pan and spread evenly. Bake
for 45 to 55 minutes or until you test with a knife in the center of the
bread and it comes out clean. Remove the pan to a wire rack, cool 10
minutes before removing bread from the pan, then finish cooling on the

And it's chow time! (Bread can be frozen for later use, thaw overnight.)
