tropical banana bread

We can never eat bananas fast enough around here, yet we continue to buy them every time we go to the grocery store. Do I mind? Absolutely not! I love bananas, and I especially love baking with bananas. There are just too many good recipes.

Last week we had some pineapple left over from a mango/pineapple salsa we made. We thought about making a tropical beverage out of it, but we just aren't quite in the right season. So, instead, I made some banana pineapple bread. As you can see by the photo, I added chocolate chips. It was a little bit of an experiment, but the bread turned out great. It was a little too moist in the center, but it did cook all the way through. It may have made a better layer cake than bread, although good nonetheless.

I've got about 6 frozen bananas in the freezer right now and another 2-3 getting on the ripe end for eating. What should my next recipe be? Any good suggestions?

On a related note: Did you know that bananas risk extinction? Yeah, it's scary. Maybe that is why I want to enjoy as many of them as I can now before it's too late.
