The Old Switcheroo...

It was a Friday baking frenzy! The cheesemaking class was coming Saturday morning and my dear neighbor Mrs M was turning 90 years young. She loves my zucchini bread so I whipped up a few loaves. The MAN loves my banana bread, so a few of those got made, too. During the frenzy, I grabbed my camera and got the zuke bread, but forgot to shoot the banana bread. I remembered just as 12 people were lifting their pieces to their lips! oh is the banana bread recipe but with a switcheroo zucchini bread photo instead. When I bake again this week, I'll switch out the photos before the MAN dives into the first loaf, if I can. It's a doozy of a sweet bread with goat cheese inside. MMMMMmmmmmm!The MAN's Favorite Banana Bread
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
8 over-ripe bananas
2 sticks of butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 heaping cup of sugar
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecans finely chopped
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter two standard size loaf pans. In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda and salt. Mash 4 of the bananas coarsely with a fork, so they still remain chunky. Set aside. In the mixer whip remaining bananas and sugar for a few minutes until light and fluffy. Add butter, eggs and vanilla. Beat another minute. Slowly combine wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a spatula until just mixed. Do not overblend! Fold in nuts, chocolate chips and chunky bananas until well blended. Divide the batter between the two prepared loaf pans. Bake one hour and 15 minutes, but start checking with a toothpick after one might be done early!

Thanks for sharing your recipe. The breads look utterly scrumptious. No wonder the banana bread disappeared before you could take a picture!
