Banana Bread

I love cooking with my Goddaughter Talina! She's eager to learn, helps put things away, understands that knives are sharp and not for her to touch and loves to eat as much as me! She is precious and I can't say 'No' to her, so it's obvious that I'd accommodate her request to make banana bread 20 minutes before her bed time!

I love this banana bread because there's so much going on. We have blueberries that moisten the bread, chocolate chips for the extra rich sweetness and bits of pecan for the extra crunch! It's amazing fresh from the oven with a nice piece of butter and a tall glass of ice cold milk!

2 bananas
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1.5 cups AP flour
1/2 cup melted butter 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg

Mash banana to a pulp with your fork. Add the butter and egg and beat until well incorporated. Sift in the dry ingredients and add the blueberries, chocolate chips and pecans. Mix with a spatula until everything JUST comes together (don't overwork it). Place in a buttered bread loaf tin and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clear when inserted.
