The Only Banana Bread Recipe You'll Ever Need/ How To Make The Best Banana Cake --Cooking A Dream

Ultimate banana bread recipe here. soft and moist moderately sweet the best banana bread or you can call it banana cake recipe you'll ever need. I don't know if you can call it chocolate banana nut bread as well cause I added a fair amount of chocolate and nuts to wrap it up.This batter will make beautiful banana muffins and pancakes as well.

4 overripe very soft bananas (480g)
2 ½ cups (250 g) of AP flour
3 large eggs (180g)
3/4 cup (150g) of oil (I used sunflower)
¼ cup (50g) of milk
1/3 cup (70g) of sugar *I find this is enough sugar but if you have a sweet tooth increase it to 100g
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2  teaspoon (5g) baking soda
½ cup (70g) of milk chocolate
½ cup (65 g) of  mixed nuts,(pistachio, almond, Pecans )
2 tbsp cocoa powder(12g)

pan size 10" x 5'

Preheat oven to (170C) degrees. use parchment paper or Grease 10” x 5" loaf pan. In a bowl mix and sift dry ingredients and set aside. In a large bowl mix wet ingredients until combined. Beat eggs until frothy and pale in color then add to the banana mix.Combine the dry into the wet, being careful not to over mix Or you will have tough bread.  Fold in half of the chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into a loaf pan. sprinkle rest of the chocolate and nuts on top. Bake for 65 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean. If bread starts to brown too much on the top, cover with foil and continue to bake until cooked through.
