** Breaking news…… I have discovered banana bread nirvana…
Do not, I repeat, do not let the humble appearance of this fool you. It is pure chocolate/banana evil disguised as a simple snack or breakfast cake.
Chocolate lovers only need apply.
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread – adapted from savory sweet life
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
½ cup sugar
2 bananas, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup of sour cream
1 cup mini or regular chocolate chips
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9×5 loaf pan, or 2 mini pans with non-stick spray and set aside
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Stir in egg, mashed bananas, sour cream, and vanilla until well blended.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and cocoa powder, then add to the banana mixture
Mix gently until blended, then stir in the chocolate chips.
Pour batter into the pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a tester comes clean from the center. Remove from heat and allow bread to rest in the loaf pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
