Banana Bread

Every family has a go to treat that they always make. For Josh's family it is banana bread. Rarely do we see his mother without receiving a loaf. 9 times out of 10 when we have bananas in the house, Josh wants to make banana bread. There is something about this recipe that reminds him of home, his childhood, and of course his family. It is also pretty tasty too!

With all of this nasty cold weather going around lately, Josh had the urge to make his favorite comfort food. Lucky me!

1 cup of sugar
2 eggs
1 stick of margarine
2 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 banana's
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Mix sugar, eggs, and margarine until blended well
Add in baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, flower and water
Break up bananas into pieces before mixing
Beat everything together until blended well
Finally, add in the desired amount of chocolate chips

Baking Instructions:
Split up batter into 2 loaf sized pans
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden brown

Let the bread cool
(often we eat one of the breads and freeze the other for later use)
