Killer Banana Bread, by Marcia

Bake 70 min. 170°C/350°F

Mix together in a bowl, then set aside:3 cups flour (hveiti)3 1/2 tsp (teaspoons) baking powder (lyfiduft)1 tsp salt1/2 tsp cinnamon (kanell)</DIV>
In a bigger bowl, mix together:1 cup sugar (sykur)2 TBSP (tablespoons) butter (smjör/smjörliki)1 egg
Add to the sugar blend:3/4 cup milk (mjólk)3 - 4 good-sized ripe bananas (mashed) (approximately 1 1/2 cups)A little at a time, add the flour mixture to the above 'wet' mixture. Optional: add chocolate chips :)
When the batter is well blended, grease 2 loaf tins (I sprayPAM), and preheat the oven to 170°C (350°F) for at least 10 min.
Put half of the batter into each of the loaf tins.
Bake about70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of each loaf out dry and clean.
To avoid the tops of the loaves from burning, you can put a sheet of wax paper over the tops once they have formed. You can remove the loaves from the tins after they have cooled for about 20 minutes. Enjoy. :)
I have never been known for my baking skills, but even I got this one right.
Naturally I added the chocolate chips
