Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This is a really rich, dessert bread. Great for quick breakfast or warm with butter as a dessert. The walnuts may be omitted if desired.

Yield

two 9 x 5-inch loaves (24 servings)

Ingredients

1 cup shortening
2 cups granulated (white) sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 very ripe bananas, mashed
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 9 x 5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition. Stir in the mayonnaise and bananas. Stir together the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Blend the flour mixture into the banana mixture; stir just enough to evenly combine. Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts.

Bake for 50 to 75 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. Cool loaf in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
