I got this recipe from one of my aunts, who got it from an old woman she met in Hawaii while stationed there. It is hands-down the very best banana bread I've ever tasted!! No extra buttering required ;)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Stir the bananas and vinegar together in a bowl, and set aside. Cream the sugar and butter together in a large bowl until creamy and smooth, then beat in the eggs. Stir in the reserved banana mixture. In a separate bowl, stir the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together until the mixture is free of lumps. Mix the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture until well blended, and stir in the chopped walnuts and chocolate chips. Spread the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool in pan about 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack.

I'm sorry, this did not turn out for me. I think the problem was that there was too much flour and not enough liquid. I didn't pay attention nor read the other two reviews. If I had, I would have known beforehand. Maybe it's a error in the recipe when it was published? Sorry, tangyh. This was a huge disappointment.

This banana bread has too much flour. It doesn't taste like bananas but rather much more like Irish soda bread. It is rather dry but is slightly improved with the addition of butter or honey. It does, however, have a nice thick consistency.

I added some candied orange peel to this and deleted the chocolate chips. I reduced the sugar, too, and added a few handful's of pecans. I wanted a flavored bread for adults to nibble on. I served it with a sweet cream cheese spread for those who wanted "sweet". It was great and 2 loaves were eaten.
