I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chocolate, Banana and Carrot Loaf

This recipe makes one 9 X 5 loaf.

I wanted to make a little one for my Mom so I made 
one 8 X 4 and one 2  1/2 X 5 mini loaf.

1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1 egg

2 ripe bananas
1 medium carrot, grated
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsps cocoa
1/4 cup ground flax (optional)
3/4 cup chocolate chips

Cream together the sugar, butter and egg in a large mixing bowl.  Add bananas (mine really should have been more ripe),  carrot, vanilla and sour cream.

Mix together the dry ingredients. Flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa. (Flax too if you are using it)

Add the dry ingredients into the banana mixture. Combine well. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Spray the loaf pan (or pans) and pour the batter in.
Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes for mini loaf
                                50 minutes for the 8 X 4 pan
                                50-60 minutes for 9 X 5 pan.
A toothpick should come out clean upon testing.
Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to a rack to cool completely. Look how moist it is!
