What to do with overly ripe bananas – I say, let them ripen & ripen until overripe and make some banana bread!
4 ripe bananas
1/2 cup / 125 g butter or vegan margarine
2 eggs or substitute them with egg replacer powder accordingly (or 1 egg = 1 TSP baking powder + 1/2 TSP baking soda + 2 TBSPs flour + 3 TBSPs water – all mixed well)
1 cup / 215 g raw brown sugar
1,5 cups / 250 g flour
1 TSP baking powder
1 TSP vanilla extract
1/2 TSP salt
1/2 TSP cinnamon
1 cup / 170 g chocolate chips
Preheat your oven (fan) to about 350ºF / 180ºC.
Mash the bananas until fine & smooth. In another bowl melt the butter or margarine, let it cool down a bit and fold in the sugar. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract & cinnamon in yet another bowl. Add two beaten eggs (or the egg replacement) and the butter / sugar mix to the banana mash and combine well, then mix in the combined dry ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips and pour all into a well-greased loaf pan.
Bake for about an hour – my banana bread took 50mins to bake, so definitely check it with a cake tester (you can also use a skewer or toothpick).
