B is for Banana Bread

Mommy school is focusing on "B" this week (if you don't know what mommy school is, it is my homespun homeschool program for my 3 1/2 year old).  Here is what we're learning about during our "B" week:

Writing the letter B
B phonogram
Banana Bread (chocolate chip banana bread to be exact)
Big vs. Little (comparing sizes)
Bugs (different parts of a bugs body)
Bedtime (why our bodies need sleep)
Blast off (learn about the space shuttle)

I think I'll cap it off there, so as not to overwhelm either teacher or student. Here's the recipe I used for the banana bread.  It's quick, easy and good.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

4 small or 3 large bananas
1 1/4 cups of sugar
2 eggs
1/2 of cup oil
1 tsp. of vanilla
2 cups of self rising flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1/4 tsp. of salt
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of pecans (optional)

Beat the bananas with a mixer. Add remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips and pecans. Beat on medium speed until well-blended.  Add chocolate chips and pecans if using. Divide into two greased loaf pans and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
