Banana Bread (or Cake)

This is a recipe for banana bread, but I most often bake it in a 9x9 Pyrex dish and serve it like cake. So it's up to you: bread? or cake?

2 cups flour
2-1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 t. vanilla
2 (very ripe) bananas, mashed

Combine dry ingredients and chocolate chips in large bowl.
In small bowl beat oil and sugar until fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, to oil mixture, beating to mix well each time.
Add vanilla and mashed bananas to wet ingredients.
Combine wet and dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
Pour into a greased bread or cake pan.
Bake at 350 degrees: 60 minutes in bread pan OR 45 minutes in cake pan.
Cool pan on wire rack.
Slice or cut and serve.
