I am a first time baker. Recipe: Banana chocolate chips bread

I am a first time baker and i definitely choose the easy one recipe i could find. It's easy to make this but i really mess up with the outcome, the taste is good no questions ask. But as you can see i mess up with the bread. I forgot to cool it down before removing it from the pan. super silly me. Huhuhu. But i learn my lesson and i am just a newbie. Let give you the easy recipe of my Banana-chocolate chip bread and thanks to yummy magazine for this.

Serve:  8-10 person

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Baking Time: 45 Minutes

What you need:

1 3/4 cups of all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup dark brown sugar or mascuvado
3/4 cup corn oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 very ripe banana, mashed
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan. Set Aside.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Stir to mix and set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine brown sugar and oil. Add eggs, one at the time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add vanilla and mashed banana.
  • Mix in the flour mixture and add chocolate chips lastly.
  • Pour mixture into the preheated pan. Bake for 45 min or until the tootpick you inserted is clean.
  • Before removing the bread let it cook for 20 mins and another 15 mins before slicing.
There you go. I hope you like it. I will be posting a more professional baking recipe here next time.
