White Chocolate Banana Bread

IMG_8605Hey there– It was those black bananas moldering on the counter that got me going to pop this into the oven.  It’s my mom’s banana bread with a little extra– white chocolate and crunchy walnuts.  When it comes out of the oven, sweet and warm, it’s scrumptious.

2 bananas, the riper the better
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

IMG_8615Smash the bananas with a fork in a large mixing bowl.  Stir in the oil, eggs and sugar.  Then add the flour, baking powder and salt.  Finally fold in the white chocolate chips and walnuts.  Spoon it into 1 large standard bread pan or two smaller pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray.  And bake it up at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

My mom’s been making this recipe for years.  My sis, Lulu and I still talk about the rainy day our usually very sensible mom baked up a big pan of banana bread and served it with whipped cream for lunch!  So much better than our normal bologna sandwiches.  It was unforgettable…
