Dark Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread (recipe)

1/2 cup / 125 g butter
3/4 cup / 150 g fine raw or brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups pureed bananas (2 or 3 ripe bananas)
1 Tbsp. rum or vanilla extract (or both)
2 cups / 250 g flour (can be 1/2 whole grain)
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup / 100 g dark chocolate, chopped coarsely into small chunks

Preheat oven to 350ºF/ 180ºC. Butter and flour a loaf baking pan.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in pureed bananas and rum and/or vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir dry ingredients into to wet ingredients quickly, then stir in dark chocolate chunks.
Bake in prepared loaf pan in preheated 350ºF/180ºC oven for 50-60 minutes or until banana bread tests done.
Cool before slicing, but bread can be served slightly warm.
Yum! Comfort food at its best, great for a weekend afternoon or special breakfast treat.
