Banana Bread

Well, I had opted to try my hand at several bread recipes but got stuck on this one as it is delicious.

Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup butter
3 oz. cream cheese
1 cup brown sugar (reduce to 2/3 cup at high altitudes)
2 ripe bananas
1 egg
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup flour (plus 1 T at High  Altitudes)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips (I like to use bittersweet chocolate chips if you can find them)

Heat oven to 350.  Lightly grease a loaf pan and dust with flour.
Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light in color and fluffy.  Add the bananas, egg and sour cream and mix until smooth.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir in chips.  Pour into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 60 – 75  minutes, until golden and not doughy in the middle.

High Altitude directions: Add flour, decrease sugar and add an additonal 1 - 2 T. milk.
