Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Bread 香蕉燕麦巧克力面包 (Featured in Group Recipes )

The day before hubby told me that he couldn't finish the banana on time (It was on sales last week and I had bought more than his usual daily consumption) and there were still two very ripe bananas that needed to be disposed ASAP. Seeing that, it struck my mind to use up these ripe bananas to bake banana bread for our computing class lunch sharing on Wednesday.    

Frankly this was my 3rd attempts of banana bread making. I tried using 2 different recipes but having the same failure reason where the bread were a bit over burnt outside but center still mushy. After, getting great baking suggestions from my Foodbuzz foodies, I decided to give it another try. Thank god, this time the bread turned out very flavorful and not mushy else it would be very embarrassing for me to be empty handed to the lunch sharing function.

This is a very simple recipe. In fact, I have combined 2 recipes into one. I adapted the main recipe from my sister-in-law who email me from Vancouver. The original recipe used Walnut which my boy does not like it. So, I replaced with two other ingredients Oat and Chocolate chips which I extracted from another recipe recommended in Taste magazine.

Lunch Sharing at TWOA Computing Class @ 03/11/2010

1 3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup  sugar
1/3 cup  margarine/cooking oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 cup mashed ripe banana (about 3 big bananas) added 1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup Oat (The original recipe uses walnut, you can replace with walnut)
1/2 cup Chocolate chips (Optional, my boy like chocolate chip so I added in)

  1. Pour flour into mixing bowl.  Add baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Stir well.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, cream sugar, margarine and egg thoroughly.  (I used hand mixer to do this. I cream about 5 minutes with the machine. )
  3. Add #1 into #2.  Blend well. Add mashed ripe banana and lemon juice.  Blend well.  Stir in oat/walnut and chocolate chips.
  4. Pre-heat the oven at 180C (350F) , lightly greased bread loaf pan and pour the flour and banana mixture into the loaf pan.
  5. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 60 minutes or until the cake becomes golden brown. Test doneness by inserting a toothpick all the way in the centre and pull out.  If the toothpick come out clean (with no moist crumb stuck on the toothpick), it's cooked.  Otherwise put in oven for a few minute until it pass the toothpick test. 
  6. Take out from oven, let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool on rack again for 10 minutes before cut. 
Keep an eye on the bread after 35 minutes-40 minutes, if you see the top is a bit burnt, use foil to cover and let it continue to bake.

    Yes, very frustrating when you thouught you going to have new dish to surprise your family but you ended with failed dish :-(

    I have a fun computing class, many of my classmates are all very good at cooking and they all come from different countries, China, Korean, Kiwi so I get to learn many different cuisine from them.
