Banana Bread

First time I had "Banana Bread" at  The Imperial Hotel Janpath. After that whenever I have tea in the afternoon I crave for it. I tried at least 18 recipes of banana bread but this was the best. I just hate bananas but I like the banana in the Banana Bread. This is an indirect way of getting the benefit of the fruit. (Bananas are good for our health :) ) In our house the consumption of Banana as a fruit is low and therefore most of the times we waste half of whatever is bought.
Having shared the benefit
of the fruit, would like to go the flip side of it.
This recipe contains high amounts of butter and sugar (not good for health freaks). I m sure one can break the rules once in a while. You will not regret it at all.
I have added chocolate chip to this cake, but if you want you can add some nuts too.
I hope you enjoy as much as I do. :)
