Everyone has to have a good banana bread recipe, period!  Here I added some corn oil to ensure that my banana bread is moist and some margarine to make it fluffy.


I have lots of banana bread recipes but this one tops my list…great for snacks, for breakfast, and definitely, great for munching while finishing deadline works!

5 very ripe bananas, mashed with fork

1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine, softened

1/2 cup vegetable or corn oil

2 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed

4 large eggs

2 teaspoons banana flavoring or vanilla extract

3 cups all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon iodized salt

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pam spray 3 or 4 ( 4 x 8 ) store-bought aluminum foil pans; set aside. Preheat oven to 350 F. Measure flour, baking soda and salt in a small mixing bowl and whisk to aerate; set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the margarine, oil and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the mashed bananas and flavoring. Add flour mixture to the bananas mixture and mix until just blended; the batter should be slightly lumpy. Fold in chocolate chops. Divide the batter into the prepared pans. Bake for about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool before slicing and cut into thick slices to serve. Enjoy!
