Don’t I just love the sound of DOUBLE chocolate? I guess it did not really matter what came after the chocolate but it was a great bonus that it was banana. I enjoy my banana bread so adding double chocolate to it made me a happy lady. I made this once and was sold. I also brought it to a going away party for one of my colleagues and I got quite a number of compliments and many asked if they could carry some home. What I loved most about this cake was how fudgy and moist it is. The flavour is mostly chocolate with a good burst of bananas. It’s divine, heaven in your mouth. I doubt I’ll ever make plain banana cake again. This recipe is definitely a keeper. This is my 1st post this year on the 30 bakes in 2013 so 29 more to go. Wish me luck 🙂 HAPPY BAKING!!
Double Chocolate Banana Bread (Bake 1)
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- 3 bananas, mashed
- 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
- ½ cup cocoa
- 1 ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 180 degrees. Grease the bottom of a loaf pan (I made double this recipe and used a bigger pan)
Beat the sugar, eggs and oil in a large bowl until combined. Beat in the banana and vanilla in a separate bowl at low speed.
Sift the flour, cocoa and baking soda together in a different bowl, add to the banana mixture a little at a time till combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon the batter into the pan and bake for about 60-70 mins.
Let the pan cool for about 10 mins, remove from the pan and cool completely.
