Banana Bread. I'm not a big fan of banana bread, but we had three or four bananas wasting away in the pantry so I decided to give this bread a shot. Banana bread is one of those things people rarely make on purpose, only when those last three bananas are almost black. This scrumptious banana-walnut loaf, spiked with dark chocolate chips, is so good you'll want to make it well before the bananas get to that condition.
Stir in eggs until well blended. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt just until moistened. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. You can cook Banana Bread using 10 ingredients and 3 steps. Here is how you cook that.

There are several possible explanations behind this. You may have added too much or too little baking soda, or maybe your baking soda has already gone bad. Baking is an exact science, so little mishaps like this could be detrimental to your bread! I firmly believe that banana bread is something you should be able to make anytime and anywhere, with a mixer or with a fork, in a loaf pan or in a muffin tin — whenever you have a few bananas going soft and freckly. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
