Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II ADVERTISEMENT This is a really rich, dessert bread. Great for quick breakfast or warm with butter as a dessert. The walnuts may be omitted if desired. Ingredients 1 cup shortening 2 cups white sugar 2 eggs 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 6 very ripe bananas, mashed 3 cups all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips ½ cup chopped walnuts Directions Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans. Step 2 In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Stir in the mayonnaise and bananas. Stir together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Blend the flour mixture into the banana mixture; stir just enough to evenly combine. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Step 3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 50 to 75 minutes. Cool loaf in the pan for 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
