  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Loved it even undercooked!, Member d2debnz

It took a while. I kept having the bread overflow the Pyrex loaf pan I put it in! So, suffice to say, it did not get cooked in the middle, even after I cleaned up the pan and continued to cook it. Made the recipe about 3 times until I cut back on the wet ingredients (a little less banana and no lemon juice). My eggs might have been Xlarge instead of large, since we usually buy the bigger eggs, so I made sure the eggs were regular large as well. THEN I put the ingredients into two of my normal 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2 loaf pans, cooked them for 50 minutes and this time it worked!
