My favorite is not bread but a muffin recipe I discovered in 1989 from Best Recipes Magazine...and this year I discovered a Bundt cake recipe...I have made both 2 times each recently...chocolate chips just enhance the banana flavor...I have been able to find flour at smaller grocery store...
Banana Chocolate-Chip Bundt Cake
Ingredients 2 & 1/4 cups flour 1 & 1/4 cups white sugar 4 over-ripened, mashed bananas 1/2 cup crisco or softened butter 2 eggs 2 & 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp vanilla 2 cups milk chocolate chips Instructions Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to a large bowl (sift dry ingredients). With electric beaters mix at low speed until blended, and then on high speed for 5 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour into sprayed (or greased/floured) bundt pan and swirl batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake 40-50 mins at 375ºF.
Let cake cool for a few minutes, and loosen edges with a knife before tipping cake out of the pan.
2 extra ripe medium Bananas, peeled 2 eggs 1 cup packed brown sugar ½ cup butter melted 1 tsp vanilla 2 ¼ cups all purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder ½ tsp cinnamon ½ tsp salt 1 cup chocolate chips ½ cup chopped nuts
Puree bananas (1 cup). Beat bananas, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla until blended. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Make well in center of dry ingredients. Pour in banana mixture. Mix until just blended. Spoon into well greased 2 ½ inch muffin cups. Bake in 350 degree oven 25-30 minutes. Remove from pan.
Makes 12 muffins

Was the one with cardamom the Chai Banana Bread in that group of favorites? That one sounds familiar -- along with the Jamaican one. II tend not to veer form the one my mom made -- very basic. The last one I tried proved why. People online were raving and raving about it. The tittle boasted the only banana bread you will ever need and it looked good in photos. I was bored but had bananas to use up. I regretted it. The bread was too sweet adn lacked flavor. But I have bananas again and I may have to try the Bananas Foster one.
I was watching Bobby Flay this weekend and he made banana nut waffles with banana foster over the top. You take your normal banana bread and stick it in a waffle-maker to crisp it up. I would have never thought to do that.
