Triple Berry White Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I love that overly ripe banana’s can be celebrated, because they are perfect for banana bread! I don’t generally LOVE banana bread unless it’s chalk full of textured goodness. I like nuts, but my kids don’t. Since I’m pretty much obsessed with all things white chocolate, I thought I’d throw them into the banana bread mix, along with all of the delicious berries hanging out in my fridge. Thus was born the Triple Berry White Chocolate Chip Banana Bread in our home.

You can certainly use frozen berries, but I used fresh. The juices in the berries make the banana bread SUPER moist, which is the only way I will eat banana bread! It’s often much too dry for me. I need to SEE the moisture!

Fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries make this banana bread delicious and moist, and the white chocolate chips give a yummy texture.
Ingredients
  • 6 ripe bananas, smashed
  • ⅔ cup melted butter
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 Pinches of salt
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1.5 cups white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. ) Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. ) In a large bowl, mix mashed bananas and melted butter.
  3. ) Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla.
  4. ) Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in.
  5. ) Add the flour last, mix just enough to blend the ingredients; do not over-mix
  6. ) Add white chocolate chips and mix
  7. ) Add chopped strawberries, raspberries, and whole blueberries to the batter and mix them in to distribute evenly through the batter.
  8. ) Spray a few loaf pans or muffin tins.
  9. ) Bake a large loaf pan for 1 hour or muffin tins for 25 minutes.
  10. ) I made 3 mini loaves and 18 muffins with this mixture. Half the recipe for less.

When I bake, I like to makes lots so I can eat a generous portion, and then share with others. Let me say to my delight and chagrin…that I did eat a generous portion of this triple berry bread. I LOOOOOVED the berries oozing out into every moist bite. Berries are still in season for a little while longer, so whip yourself up a batch (or grab frozen all year long)!

French Mille Feuille Dessert Recipe

I’m very excited to share this new French Mille Feuille Dessert Recipe my husband taught me, how about a funny story?

Today is the 10th–it’s blog hop day!  I really love this fun blog hop I do with my blogging friends each month. It’s a fun creative process to be given a theme and then see what everyone comes up with from that theme. This month our theme was STRIPES! My initial thought was to do something around my house with stripes. I LOVE stripes in my clothing, but couldn’t think of something to do in my home. My husband (who may or may not be excited about the idea that I am working on a room a month) who thought it was silly of me to make a stripes home decor item that we’d then have to “store.” He suggested I make something that doesn’t take up real estate in our home. As we sat on the couch and I thought I could make something to eat, I heard the faintest whisper from him as he dreamed about a favorite treat he had in France years ago…”mille feille.” I looked to him and said, “what?!?” And he said, “many layers…stripes.” He then explained the french delicacy of a dessert with thousand leaves or many layers also known as a Napoleon. Scroll on down for the recipe and process.
