Banana Bread

My wife loves bananas. She always comes home with a bunch whenever she goes shopping.  Unfortunately, sometimes she doesn't eat them fast enough. This is a great recipe for those over ripe bananas. 

2 very ripe bananas 
2 tablespoons cane syrup
1 teaspoon molasses 
2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted butter 
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 egg
2/3 cup of milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1 teaspoon banana extract (optional)
1 cup chocolate chips

Mash the bananas in your stand mixer. Add all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and mix on low speed until well mixed. Add half the chips and fold them in batter. Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.  
Add the rest of the chips and lightly push them just below the top of the batter.
Place pan in a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until a skewer or toothpick come put clean when inserted in the middle. Allow to cool about 10 minutes, then carefully (it will still be hot) remove loaf from pan.  Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
Slice and enjoy!
