Cocoa Banana Bread

February 15, 2011

Delicious, dark, cocoa banana bread…

Cocoa Banana Bread:

  • 1/2 C (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1/2 C cocoa
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 fairly large bananas, mashed
  • 1 banana, in chunks (3 bananas total)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F and prepare bread pan.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix butter, eggs, and sugar.  Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Add dry to wet and mix just until incorporated.  It will be a bit lumpy; that is fine.
  4. Stir in mashed banana and banana chunks.
  5. Scrape batter into prepared pan and baked for about an hour.
  6. Cool and enjoy!

    I can’t remember how I came across your site but I love it… and of course I had to try your bread right away. It was very delish, and moist. Next time I think I may even add some chocolate chips. Thanks so much for sharing. I love chocolate and I love citrus, if you are a citrus lover too, you should try this recipe for coconut-lime banana bread, it is so wonderful now I have the too best ways to eat banana bread, limey and chocolatey. Here is the link to my page with the recipe,
    I originally found it from Dana from Made.
