This Shit is Bananas

In an effort to salvage some almost funky bananas, we decided to try our hand at banana bread for the first time. Plus, a hungry boyfriend offered to tackle cleaning our meth lab-esque kitchen if we let him take the whole batch to work. Baking and leaving the (pre-existing) mess for someone else? Ummm, ok. We used all ingredients that we already had on hand, making this an incredibly cost-efficient treat. While we weren't privy to tasting any of the final product, the house smelled divine, and the feedback was fabulous.

Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread
Adapted from this recipe

3 very ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 oz chocolate (we used semi-sweet chunks)

Preheat oven to 325. In a large bowl, combine mashed bananas, eggs, cream, and oil. Add sugars, flour, baking soda, and salt to the banana mixture. Once fully in corporated, fold in chocolate chunks. Pour batter into a prepared loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes.
