This is more like a cake than bread to me, so moist and soft that you have to handle with care.
Original recipe called for butter, but I used olive oil. You will not go wrong with this.

Adapted from

2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

1 large egg well beaten
1 cup ripe bananas, mashed
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup mini chocolate chips (optional)

Add flour alternately with buttermilk and mix well. Add chocolate chips and mix.
Bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes. It’s ready when a light brown colour forms on top of the cake.
Cool cake in the pan for 10 minutes and turn into a rack to cool.
