Peel the bananas, mash them using a fork and keep aside. The riper the bananas the better it is. In a wide bowl add oil, mashed bananas, brown sugar and whisk till the sugar melts.

You will find that the mixture starts clouding and the colour gets a little lighter as you keep whisking. Add the vanilla essence.

Sieve the flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and baking soda. Once the dry ingredients are sieved, add it to the mixture of wet ingredients in batches. Mix the flour using a spatula, keep in mind not to mix vigorously. Add in the rest of the flour and fold.

Now incorporate the choco chips, the mixture may be a little dry compared to the usual cake batter, if you feel it is too firm (only if you find it too difficult to fold in) add a couple of tea spoons of milk.

Next goes the “Lemon Juice” in to the mixture, fold in thoroughly.

Smear oil or butter on a loaf tin or any cake tin of your choice and dust it with flour to prepare the mould. Now transfer the mixture into the tin and put it in a preheated oven at 180 degree for 25 minutes.

Once the cake is done, insert a skewer or tooth pick to check if it’s done. If the cake is done the tooth pick comes out clean. In case it comes out gooey, you need to bake for a little longer. Whenever you insert a toothpick to check, always insert it in the middle, because invariably the sides get done faster than the middle. It’s sensible to  ensure you stick the toothpick right till the bottom.

After the bread is removed from the oven, let it cool and demould carefully by loosening the sides using a knife. Transfer to a cooling rack and let it rest for about half an hour.

Slice them into thin pieces and enjoy them with a cup of cappuccino or hot chocolate. If you are planning to visit your friend or family, just wrap these banana breads in a beautiful basket, and there you have an amazing way to  surprise!!

Tip: If you need a variation you can add about half a cup of chopped walnuts, dry fruits or nuts of your choice to replace the choco chips. Also keep in mind that browner bananas make for the most of delicious bread. Now you know what you need to do in case a few bananas have been sitting on your fruit basket longer than they were supposed to.

If you intend on storing it for more than a day, cool them completely, transfer them into an air-tight container and refrigerate. These slices can be wrapped using a cling film individually and frozen, as and when you need it pull them out of the freezer and toast them for a sumptuous breakfast!!
