TWD: Cocoa-Nana Bread


I have been debating what to say about this bread. It is a chocolate banana bread, or at least that is what the name is telling me. If I didn't know anything about this bread or what it was "supposed" to be, I think things would be different. It is very tasty and I do like it. I thought it was delicious. The problem comes from my brain.


See, for me, if you tell me there are bananas in someting, I want to taste the bananas. I want them to be a lead ingredient. The banana was more of an afterthought. This was more a chocolate bread with some bananas thrown in to make us all feel better about eating it! Which, make no mistake, this bread (cake... who are we kidding?) WILL get eaten!


I probably won't make this again in the future, though. Not because it isn't good, because like I said, it was quite tasty. The reason is because if I want banana bread, I will probably just make banana bread, and if I want chocolate, I would prefer a fudgy brownie!


Thanks to Steph of Obsessed with Baking for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog.

I know what you mean, there are definitely better alternatives for a chocolate fix or a banana fix than this, but you don't know until you try!

Love how your brain works! The idea of chocolate and bananas together seems right - but not if you can't find the banana!

I made these into brownies and the banana was actually the FIRST thing you could taste. It was like the chocolate was the after thought! But I loved them and I'm glad that you loved the bread, because it looks delicious!

Funny -banana played second fiddle in mine. Which wasn't a bad thing! These look great - glad you were able to make it!

How about banana bread with chocolate chips? I agree with your thinking, though - you should be able to taste the bananas!
