Recipe from The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook.
Magnolia Bakery--one of the best bakeries in New York City. So when I took a trip down to visit my older sister last weekend, I decided to bake her something from their cookbook. Heck, maybe she'd be able to compare my creation to the actual thing!
Only half of this Chocolate Chip Peanut Banana Loaf made its way down to the city, and a slice never made it to my sister's best friend as planned. Take that as: THIS BREAD IS DARN GOOD.
1/3 cup (5-1/3 T.) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1-1/2 cups mashed ripe banana
1/3 cup milk
2 cups self-rising flour
1/2 cup finely chopped, unsalted peanuts
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Bake at 350º. Grease and flour 9x5x3" loaf pan.
Using a large bowl, cream butter and sugar on low speed, until fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time. Add banana and milk. Mix in flour and blend thoroughly.Stir in peanuts and chocolate chips. Pour batter into pan.
Bake 45-55 minutes. Let cool 20 minutes and remove from pan.
