Marbled Banana Bread

I made this banana bread a few weeks ago.  It was really tasty.  I did not even notice it had banana in it. The recipe is from My San Francisco Kitchen.  I am going to make it again, maybe tomorrow.  

Marbled Banana Bread
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 70 minutes


2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
2 ripe bananas
2 eggs
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


1.       Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2.       In a mixing bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda and salt together.

3.       Add sugar and butter to a large bowl and beat with a mixer at a medium speed until well-blended.

4.       Add banana, eggs, and yogurt; beat until blended.

5.       Add flour mixture and beat at low speed until just blended.

6.       Melt chocolate chips in a microwave or in a double boiler stirring until smooth.

7.       Add 1 cup batter to chocolate, stirring until well combined.

8.       Spoon chocolate batter alternately with plain batter into a greased 8 ½ x 4 ½ inch loaf pan.

9.       Swirl batters together using a knife.

10.   Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

11.   Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack, then remove from pan and cool 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 1 loaf.
