Banana Bread Café Style

Banana, ooh na-na
All day I dream about banana, ooh na-na
So I made this bread of banana, na-na-na
Oh, but my home smells like banana (ay)
There nothin' wrong 'bout this matter (uh huh)
Banana, ooh na-na (uh)

Okay fine, that was cheesy, but it's kinda fun, admit it :P
There's not much I can say about this banana bread because my brain is busy humming the song nonstop apart from it being super easy to make, foolproof, and I swear to you it's good, like café style banana bread good. It's moist, heavy but not compact, it just that perfect. I added extra walnuts and dark chocolate chips. 

This is not my first (nor last, fo sho) banana bread recipe, simply because it is one of the best way of using over-ripe banana (which some how to be the case far too often in my house). The only banana I can find here in Quebec city is Cavendish banana, which unfortunately is not really the best for Indonesian recipe for bananas. I have tried multiple times and failed miserably. Maybe it's the banana, maybe it's the recipe, or maybe it just me. IMHO, Cavendish bananas work best for baking recipes.
