Banana Bread works really well with Cream Sherry, Moscato d'Asti, and Port. A common wine pairing rule is to make sure your wine is sweeter than your food. Delicate desserts go well with Moscato d'Asti, nutty desserts with cream sherry, and caramel or chocolate desserts pair well with port. You could try NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry. Reviewers quite like it with a 5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 19 dollars per bottle.

NV Johnson Estate Cream Sherry

Very aromatic with notes of hazelnut, vanilla, and a touch of oak followed by sweet raisins and a touch of yeast. Clean lasting finish. Good now but will reward those allow it to age"". A favorite pre-prandial beverage. Consider it with nuts before dinner as an aperitif, or after dinner with dessert, especially chocolates and fruit-based desserts. Also wonderful on cold afternoons, served with biscotti to dip in ""Italian-style"". "

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray either 1 loaf pan or two mini loaf pans with cooking spray, set aside. In medium bowl add the banana. Using a potato masher, fork, or spoon to squish the banana. It is alright for there to be small chunks of banana in the batter, but you want most of the banana to be reduced to mush. Add the butter and eggs and mix well together. In an another bowl combine sugar, flours, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Combine the flour mixture with the banana mixture and mix until the ingredients are blended together. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour the dough into greased baking pans and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Small loaves take around 30 minutes, a regular size loaf takes around 40-50 minutes. Remove from the oven. After they have cooled for 5 or 10 minutes the loaves can be removed from the pan to cool. Once they are cool they can be eaten or individually wrapped and frozen. Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If your recipe calls for ripe bananas and you only have green ones, stick the green bananas in a closed paper bag to speed up the ripening process. You can even put an apple in the bag with them since apples produce a lot of the gas that encourages ripening (called ethylene). This process takes some time, of course, so if you need ripe bananas immediately you might give the oven method a try.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • There are two types of cinnamon. The more expensive and rarer type is Ceylon cinnamon (considered to be "true cinnamon"). The cinnamon most common in North America is cassia cinnamon. Though the flavor is certainly similar, Ceylon cinnamon is said to be more subtle yet also more complex.
