Extra Moist Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

by Divine Domesticity on October 1st, 2008

One of my favorite food blogs is Good Things Catered. I am constantly in awe of all the entertaining/cooking/cleaning Katie does on a weekly basis.

Katie came up with this recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, which utilizes a package of vanilla pudding mix, giving the bread a lot of moistness and great flavor. It is my new favorite recipe for banana bread.

Thanks Katie!
