Why we love chocolate chip banana bread skillet

We are big fans of skillet recipes. We find that baking in a skillet results in the best textures. You get a fluffy center and a thick crust when you bake banana bread in a skillet. Truly, this bread is more of a cake than a loaf!

Another reason we love this recipe is because it is packed with chocolate. There are white chocolate chips and semi sweet chocolate chips mixed in the batter and poured on top. AND we include melty chocolate squares stuffed in the middle.

You can totally serve this banana bread as a cake! But you can also disguise this dessert as breakfast. Any way you slice it, you can’t go wrong.

How to make chocolate chip banana bread skillet

  1. Peel the ripe bananas and mash them in a large mixing bowl. You can use a fork or a spatula. The goal is to leave them a bit lumpy.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the butter and sugar together. You can use a stand mixer, an electric hand mixer, or a whisk for this part!
  3. Next, add in the eggs and vanilla, and whisk until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Mix in the greek yogurt, mashed bananas, baking soda, salt. When it is fully mixed, add in the flour until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour half of the batter into a 12-inch cast iron skillet.
  6. Sprinkle half the chocolate chips, creating a layer of chocolate.
  7. Pour the rest of the batter on top of the chocolate layer.
  8. Sprinkle the top with the remaining chocolate chips.
  9. Bake for 35-40 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees. If the top starts to brown too much, loosely cover with foil.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool fully.
    • Note: The banana bread will continue to cook in the cast iron from the residual heat.
  11. Slice and serve!

How to store this banana bread

This banana bread cake is so good, it is doubtful you will have leftovers! But the great news is that it is very easy to store. If you are going to eat it the same day, you can leave any leftovers on the countertop at room temperature.

To make this banana bread last longer, you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days! There are a couple ways to store it to maintain optimum freshness. If you want to leave the cake whole, we recommend an airtight container. You can also slice it up and individually wrap each slice in plastic wrap. To maintain moisture, you want to limit the amount of air that comes in contact with the crumble of the cake.

You can also freeze our chocolate chip banana bread skillet. Just slice it and wrap it in plastic wrap. A wrapped up piece of banana bread will last up to 3 months in the freezer!
