Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 240 grams
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar 150 grams
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt 3 grams
  • 3 very ripe bananas 341 grams (1½ cups mashed)
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt 57 grams
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 85 grams, melted and cooled (¾ stick)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest from 1 orange
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips 170 grams

Optional Topping:

  • 1 banana not overly ripe, sliced into ⅛-inch slices

Instructions

  • Grease and flour the bottom of a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Set the oven rack to lower middle position and heat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt; set aside.
    2 cups all-purpose flour, ¾ cup granulated sugar, ¾ teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mash together the bananas, yogurt, melted butter, vanilla and orange zest.
    3 very ripe bananas, ¼ cup plain yogurt, 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • Lightly fold the mashed banana mixture and chocolate chips into the flour mixture with a rubber spatula. Mix the batter just until combined – it should be lumpy and thick.
    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, smooth out the top and, if desired, arrange banana slices on top.
    1 banana
  • Bake 55-60 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Transfer bread to a cooling rack and cool in the pan 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, turn bread out of the pan, turn right side up. Serve warm or at room temperature.
