Ingredients

4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 large eggs
6 very ripe bananas, lightly mashed with a fork
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus additional for topping
1 cup mini-marshmallows, plus additional for topping
1 cup coarsely crumbled graham crackers, plus additional for topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and lightly flour 2 9x5x3 inch loaf pans  Combine dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and spices) in a large bowl. Cream together butter and sugar with a stand mixer or electric mixer.  Add eggs, one at a time, while beating slowly.  Add bananas, vanilla extract and sour cream and blend.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well-blended.  Fold in chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham crackers.  Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans and let it settle.  Tap the pans on the counter a few times to even out the batter and to let air bubbles rise to the surface.  Top each loaf with a sprinkle of chocolate chips, marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs.  Bake cakes about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean.
 
Let bread rest 10-15 minutes before removing from the pans.  Serve warm, or cool completely.
