a blogger’s dozen: emory’s chocolate chip banana bread (hello, scarlett)

IMG_1.jpgThis recipe is one that was given to me by my mum. I have tried a lot of different types of banana bread in my time, but this, by far, remains my favourite recipe. I sincerely hope that you will also try it out the next time that you decide to make a loaf. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

IMG_2.jpg Chocolate Chip Banana Bread:

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 egg

1 cup bananas, mashed

1/2 cup soured milk

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 bar dark chocolate

IMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIn a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, bananas, and vanilla. Add the remaining ingredients.

IMG_6.jpgBake at 350°F in a well-greased loaf pan for 1 hour, or until cooked entirely through.

    Well done chickee. A blogger a baker what’s next?



  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
