Test Kitchen Tip

Use this recipe to make one 9×5-inch loaf of bread. Bake it 11/4–11/2 hours.


Preheat oven to 350°. Coat three 6×3×2-inch loaf pans with nonstick spray.

For the bread, purée bananas, sugar, peanut butter, eggs, oil, sour cream, and vanilla in a food processor; transfer to a large bowl.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and fold into banana mixture along with 1 cup chocolate chips. Divide batter among prepared pans; bake until a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, 45–50 minutes. Transfer loaves to a rack and let cool in pans, 10 minutes. Turn out loaves and let cool completely.

For the glaze, melt ⅓ cup chocolate chips with cream, butter, and corn syrup in a microwave; whisk until smooth. Drizzle glaze over loaves.


A food processor works well to quickly mash the bananas while puréeing the batter as well.


Fold the dry ingredients into the wet, but don’t overmix or the loaves will be tough and full of holes.
