Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Prep Time15 mins
Servings: 1 loaf

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 4 oz bittersweet chocolate melted
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 3 very ripe bananas if frozen be sure to thaw them
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • Mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Place some water into a pot over medium heat. Place a glass bowl in the pot (making a double boiler) then add the pieces of bittersweet chocolate. Stir often until just melted. Remove from the stove and set aside.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter until lightened, then beat in the melted chocolate, eggs, bananas, and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients until just combined; do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake until a tester inserted into the center of the bread comes out almost clean, 60-70 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes before removing the bread from the loaf pan. Continue to cool on a baking rack. Once the bread has cooled completely, sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. Slice and serve. Enjoy.
