I Just Made The Most Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Ever

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just made the most moist chocolate chip banana bread ever. My sister in law made this bread and brought it to our house last Christmas eve (only thing is she made it with Regular flour, she doesn't have celiac, my husband does). I have been asking her for the recipe and I got it the other day and thought I would try to make it for my husband, Jeff but with rice flour and add xantham gum. Well it turned out GREAT. We can't stop eatting it. I think it is so moist because it has 1/2 cup heavy cream.

Heres the recipe

1 3/4 cups rice flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking powder

5 TBSP butter (softened)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1 large egg

2 egg whites

1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3 medium)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided

1/2 tsp. xantham gum

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Coat 9x5 inch loaf pan with crisco, set aside

2. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder in medium bowl; stir to mix well.

3. Place butter in large bowl; beat at medium speed until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugars; beat in egg

and egg whites. Reduce speed to low; beat in bananas. Beat in vanilla. Beat in flour mixture in 2

additions alternately with heavy cream. Stir in 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips.

4. Spoon batter into prepared pan; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 chocolate chips. Bake 55 to 60 minutes

or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack; remove

from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

If you do try this recipe please if you don't mind let me know what you think (if you have the time)

Thanks and ENJOY

Sue

I'm glad your DS is enjoying it. It is a very moist tasty bread, if you have any left it will last for several days and will still be just as moist.

Hi,

If you can't have dairy, maybe you can try either water or use applesauce in place of the heavy cream. I know that when my Mom doesn't want the fat from oil when baking she replaces it with applesauce. I hope this helps.

If anyone else has any suggestions about replacing the cream (if you can't have dairy) please post.

Thanks,

Sue

I posted the other day about making this and how much DS loved it. I have to tell you all that one of my best friends also tried it and loved it (she is not gluten-free) and wanted the recipe. I really can't say enough good things about this bread. One large loaf was gone within 2-3 days, with DS eating the majority of it! LOL!

Hi,

I'm glad your best friend loved it too. Our 4 children and I also love this bread and we don't have to be gluten free, just my husband, Jeff. When my sister in law who also isn't gluten free gave me the recipe, I just used rice flour and xantham gum instead of regular flour and I couldn't believe how great it tasted, it tasted just like the regular loaf she brought over our house.
