Old-Fashioned Fragrant Banana Bread

Who doesn't start their baking career with a banana bread recipe? It is a recipe most of us begin with and always return back to, especially when there are bananas going ripe in the fruit bowl. There are so many different banana bread recipes and I like to try different kinds, but the recipes I love the best are those with choc chips and walnuts. It is the perfect marriage, banana, chocolate and walnuts, can't get better than that. This Banana Bread I have made today is a wonderful example of all those flavours together.

This morning I had the challenge of finding a recipe with 2 eggs in the ingredients list, (only had 2 eggs left in the fridge). I came across this recipe in my latest new book, A Passion for Baking by Marcy Goldman and thought Bingo!! The recipe itself is very simple, easy and takes no time at all to prepare and into the oven to bake. I have a feeling this won't last long, it's so moist and fluffy, and the flavours, well need I say more!
