"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." — TI2GR

very ripe bananas, mashed
semi-sweet chocolate chips
This recipe is really good - I don't normally use shortening, so I substituted butter and it came out great.
This was good! Very rich. Make sure you grease and Flour the pan. Mine stuck to the bottom! lol Only because it didn't say in the recipe.
Unusual mix! Added a tsp of banana extract for an extra boost of flavor and coated the chocolate chips with flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan. Have made it for numerous camping and 4 wheeling trips for a group of hungry men. All gave me the thumbs up!!!
I hate when my family goes out and buys storebought mixes for banana bread. It's disgusting. However, with this recipe, I think I have stopped them for good. I substitute butter for shortening, use half white sugar and half brown, halve the chocolate chips, nix the walnuts, and add one teaspoon of vanilla extract. I was skeptical at first, but the mayonnaise makes all of the difference! Next time I'll try cutting back on the fat and use apple sauce to replace some of the butter. Can it get any better?
Amazing banana bread! I have been making banana bread for 12 years and have never had a bread turn out as moist as this one. I work for an extremely established restaurant and brought it in for staff meal, people were blown away. I did use butter instead of shortening though...I don't trust shortening.
Thank you Betty for sharing this recipe. My husband asks for it repeatedly. Although it is great as is I have found that it is a very forgiving recipe. You can substitute butter for shortening, you don't have to have enough bananas and you can vary the amount of walnuts and chocolate chips to suit your taste. I bake it in a bundt pan because I think it presents well that way. You can dust the pan with cinamon sugar or cocoa if you wish to keep the bread from sticking.
Oh my gosh! YUM YUM YUM!! This reminds me so much of the banana bread my grandma used to make. So moist! I followed a few other reviewers and used butter instead of shortening. I also made this recipe in mini loaf pans and wrapped each one individually. My kids loved grabbing a mini loaf for a treat. Also, with making them as a mini loaves, I didn't have to slice it - which help me avoid the problem of some reviewers: that it was so moist it was hard to slice. With a mini loaf, you just eat it like a muffin! :) No slicing required! Just do what my kids did, stuff the whole thing in your mouth! :)
This is a delicious, moist banana bread.
I omitted the walnuts and added extra chocolate chips! Wonderful! KAMY
