We had four very ripe bananas sitting on the counter. We usually never have ripened bananas unless we go away for the weekend leaving behind our precious bananas. I was recently telling
complaining my husband about how quickly bananas disappear around our house.
A day after I told him, he got lots of bananas from Walmart while he went to shop for cookies. We will leave it to some other day about cookie obsession in this house. So that’s how I ended up making this loaf.
Anyhow, I was debating between making banana tres leches or chocolate banana loaf. My eldest son only likes baked goodies with chocolate. Oh and he totally knows what Cocoa powder is, seriously kids these days? Unbelievable
Considering my little mans feelings I decided to make Chocolate Loaf Cake. He just finished his slice and with his arms open wide he said “I love you this much” Ah that means the world to me. Literally.
It’s a nice moist loaf. Imagine bread topped with melted dark chocolate and bananas slices. Yeah it kinda tastes something like that.
Tomorrow I’m totally eating the leftovers with vanilla ice cream InshaAllah.
For the Loaf you will need:
- 1/2 cup butter, room temp
- 3 ounces dark chocolate, melted
- 2 large eggs, room temp
- 3 medium bananas, mashed
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Cream butter until fluffy. Add in the melted chocolate beat well. Add eggs, mashed bananas, and vanilla. Beating well after each addition.
In separate bowl combine dry ingredients together. Fold in with spatula until just combined. Make sure not to over mix the batter. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 50-60 mins until the toothpick inserted comes out clean.
