Warm Bread on a Winter Day

After a few months of perfecting, I've come up with a yummy banana bread recipe that's been a hit with our guests!  

Extreme Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter, room temperature

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt

1/2 cup buttermilk

4 large bananas, mashed

1 tsp vanilla

3 cup flour

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

3/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips

1 cup frozen raspberries

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray.

Cream butter and sugar then add eggs one at a time. Beat in yogurt, bananas and vanilla.  Mix together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon then add mixture to the wet ingredients.  Add up to 1/2 cup buttermilk to make a thick batter. Hand stir in the chocolate chips and raspberries.

Spoon batter in prepared pans then bake for 60-65 minutes until tester comes out clean.  Allow bread to cool completely before cutting.  This bread tastes best 2 days after baking!
