Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Cream the sugar and butter together with a hand mixer. Beat in the eggs.
Mash the bananas with a fork. Add them to the sugar/butter/egg mixture. Beat with the mixer for about 30 seconds.

 Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Again beat with the mixer--be careful not to over beat.
 Fold in the chocolate chips.
Grease and flour an angel food cake pan.

 Pour in the batter.

 Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes. Cool bread on a wire rack. Baking in this type of pan allows for more even baking. Plus, it is a much more managable piece of bread for the kids.
