Moist Chocolate Banana Bread

Moist Chocolate Banana Bread

I would always say yes for a slice of Banana Bread and this Chocolate Banana Bread is no exception ! The bread is soft, moist and there really is no need for butter or any kind of spread.

The chocolate almost oozes out from the bread as you slice it. Totally delicious and another very easy recipe. I used my favorite Banana Bread recipe, made some tweaks and doubt I will ever make the plain bread again.


1 Medium Bread


1/2 cup Butter, room temperature
1 cup Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 1/2 - 2 cups Mashed Banana   {I did not mash mine too finely}
1 t Vanilla
2 cups Flour
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 t Baking Soda
1 t Baking Powder
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a medium bread pan with cooking oil and line the base with baking paper.
2.) Beat together the Butter and Caster Sugar until creamy - add the Eggs, one by one, beating in between additions - add the Banana and Vanilla - stir until combined.
3.) Sift together the Flour, Cocoa, Baking Soda and Baking Powder - fold into the Banana mixture - pour into the prepared bread pan.
4.) Sprinkle the Chocolate Chips on top of the bread batter - bake 45 - 60 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack for a few minutes and serve warm !
