Test Kitchen's Favorite Banana-Chocolate Chip Bread
Freezing and thawing over-ripe bananas before mashing creates a syrupy-thick juice, more like liquid gold, that bursts with sweet banana flavor and makes this loaf next-level delicious.
Over-ripe bananas should be totally brown, slightly soft, and fragrant. You can also freeze them (in their skins) for up to six months. Let thaw completely, then pop them open from the stem end and squeeze the flesh and any juices directly into a bowl.
