1-800-CALL-JEAN

My sister Nancy emailed me earlier tonight asking for a recipe suggestion for her work's bake sale on Friday. As for me, I instinctively look to the honourable Jean Pare, mogul of the Comany's Coming dynasty and grandmother of all good Canadian prairie food. Nancy, my recommendation is for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread - This recipe's based on Jean's rendition from 'Muffins and More.' It's been a big hit with my small group and with work colleagues (it's kindof unique here - people are expecting bread and they get cake - nice surprise!) And who could forget treeplanting? If it's good enough for Sardell . . .

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

makes 1 loaf
2 eggs
1 c sugar
1/2 butter melted
1 c mashed bananas (3 bananas, the blacker the better!)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 F. Beat together the eggs, sugar, butter until frothy. Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla. In a separate larger bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Add the wet ingredients to dry and stir well but don't over mix. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a loaf tin lined with baking parchment. Bake for 50-60mins or until a knife comes out clean.
