I'm not usually a big fan of banana bread, so forgive me if I "monkey around" with a recipe....heehee.
Well shoot, who doesn't end up with these once in awhile?
Today, I decided to take my regular banana bread recipe (and by regular, I mean Chocolate Chip Banana Bread) and do something just a tad different. How about some chocolate covered toffee chips?
3 ripe bananas½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup chocolate covered toffee bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.; grease a 5X9” loaf pan.
Combine the bananas, butter, sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, or until thoroughly mixed; add vanilla.
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the banana mixture and stir until combined. Fold in the toffee chips.
Did I say 1 cup of toffee chips? I guess I didn't really measure. I just added the rest of the bag (about half). Not too much of a good thing here.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool on rack for at least ten minutes before removing from pan.
The toffee chips caramelized a little on the edges and made the bread pretty brown. It was all good, though. :)
Banana bread usually tastes better after a day. Unfortunately, no one in my family can wait that long.
Oh, yeah! We'll be making this one again.
