Costco has a great deal on it where I live in Canada. :). Not a goood recipe, dry and crumbly and hard like a brick to think it was only baked for 40 mins. They are a big hit! i have been making banana “bread” with chocolate chunks and walnuts for many years… but today i will go “all the way” with the chocolate… what a great idea! This was easy-peasy to make! First time I’m grateful for being Belgian/Dutch, because I aways have that cacao powder here ;-) We ate every crumb. Next time I try adding nuts. OMG, chocolate, banana and RUM? Beth — I did not weigh them. I just want to say that I thought your jacked-up banana bread recipe was the queen of all banana bread recipes, but you still always manage to surpass yourself. Why does Deb keep taunting me with this?! I must be really lucky it turned out so well ! I ended up with one of the best chocolate freaking cakes I’ve ever had in a loaf. I have a theory that Mondays are for repentance, for undoing whatever damages to your liver, psyche or saddlebags you’ve done over the weekend. 4 days? I love your jacked up banana bread–what do you think about adding a Tbs of bourbon to this…too much? So bummed out because the smell is awesome in my kitchen but I have a very flat and deflated loaf! Had two leftover super-duper ripe bananas. I couldn’t wait to finally try this bread. This is killing me! It’s hard to tell because it’s so moist and cakey, might just be the bananas. It is perfect. Carrie — You can double it by doubling everything. :). This recipe is amazing! Worked great in my new right-sized loaf pan! FYI, I throw extra ripe bananas in the freezer, so I usually have them on hand. Easier enough to hand-chop. I am an 8-year old boy, and I made this with my mom. Dont forget to chop up the nana skins and place around your roses,, they love them :]. Thanks for the great recipes! hate finding typos after posting…I subbed in 100% …. I make if for everyone :) If I make as cupcakes, how long should I bake for? and made it in jumbo muffin tins. I’ve done it often. Then, because no I do not always prep my baking pans before I gather my ingredients and start, I realized I lost every single loaf pan I own, apparently. I made these today in muffin form and they were divine! So the rest of the cake got 100g of flour only. I have had one small question, and I’m not sure if you’ll be able to answer it or not, but I’ll give it a shot: Both times it has come out perfectly soft and moist in the center, but the “crust”(outside of the loaf?) I made muffins of this today, and this evening’s dessert consisted of sliced muffin topped with fresh berries, topped with chocolate sauce (see, with a little whipped cream on top. When I asked if wanted a healthy-ish version and he replied “no I want dessert”, I knew this recipe was the ticket. :))))). I completely forgot the bittersweet chocolate until all the batter was in the pan and cups, so I pushed 3 into each of the muffins and all over the top of the loaf, but did not use nearly as much as the recipe calls for. Thanks so much for this recipe! I’m almost tempted to try this recipe, because I do have the world’s best banana bread recipe, but cocoa. There is a but though — the banana flavor was not as prominent as we would have liked. I do make this, like most of my desserts, with flax eggs because I have a friend and now a boyfriend that can’t handle eggs. Hooe this turns out good! OMG….

May try to add some walnuts next time. I just made this yesterday using Trader Joe’s gluten free flour mix (which I was kinda surprised to find doesn’t contain xanthan gum or something similar, it’s just a blend of flours/starches, but said it can be used in place of AP flour) with success! Which do I love more: this recipe with all of the rich, oozing chocolate (in two forms, cocoa and chips!) You’ll start by buttering a six-cup loaf pan and preheating your oven. OH MY WORD! Can’t believe I haven’t tried this yet! I sprinkled cinnamon and a little bit of sea salt on top. It’s not about Dutched cocoa needing baking powder; it’s about baking soda needing an acidic ingredient to activate. Serve with a tall glass of milk :) YUM. I think a chocolate loaf would be good too, but sometimes there is such a thing as too much chocolate, lol. I didn’t butter the pan but lined the bottom w parchment paper. You can scoop out some batter for plain banana bread and then add choc chips to the rest of the batter. It is Mardi Gras, after all! Everyone loved it, and all the women asked for the recipe.
