Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Bananabread

Woohoo! I just made some Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Bananabread :)

Some of you might remember it from this post. I'll reproduce the recipe here, in case you don't feel like playing follow-the-links:
2-3 over-ripe bananas
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup chopped pecans and walnuts
1/4 cup (or a little less) flaked dark chocolate
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange juice
freshly-grated orange zest

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a standard 9 x 5 loaf pan (I prefer Pyrex).

Whisk two eggs. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas up until their little banana mommies wouldn't recognise them,* then mix in the beaten eggs. Sift together the flour, sugar, salt, and soda in a medium bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix into banana mixture until well blended. Stir in nuts, chocolate, vanilla, orange juice and zest.

Pour batter into a 9x5-inch loaf pan and bake at 350° for 1 hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Makes 1 loaf of banana nut bread.

I didn't actually have any oranges or flaked dark chocolate, so my recipe was somewhat revised. I used...
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour, and ½ cup whole wheat flour instead of all all-purpose

  • a mix of light brown and dark brown sugar, instead of all light

  • ¼ cup Hershey's dark chocolate chips

  • a pinch of cinnamon

WOW. It was awesome. Holy smokes, I'll take a picture for you!

Of course, this was after I took a big chunk out of it. YUM!

* Honest, I really have this written, verbatum, on my recipe card. I'm such a goof!
** The recipe is actually filed under "Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Bananabread," too.
*** I've missed my little footnotes! Yay, footnotes!
