Best Chocolate Banana Bread:

By: Grace Dale

How To Make it:

First you know that you need ingredients so the ingredients are:

  • 3 large ripe bananas (easily mashable)
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed, light or dark)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (1/2 a teaspoon if using salted butter)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Now if you got all of these ingredients then you can start so how you make this you first need to reign everything out then 1 Prepare pan and preheat oven:  Butter or spray with cooking spray the inside of a 5×9-inch loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C) with a rack in the middle. (at least that is what I did)

2 Purée the bananas: (Puree means to smooth them and make them into a sort of paste.)

 Using a blender, food processor, or a fork, purée the peeled ripe bananas until smooth. You should have 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups of banana purée.

3 Mix wet ingredients and sugar: Place the banana purée into a large mixing bowl. Stir the melted butter. Stir in the brown sugar and salt. Whisk to break up any clumps of brown sugar. Stir in the beaten egg and vanilla extract. Then once you’re done with doing all of these 4 Mix dry ingredients: In a separate bowl, vigorously whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and allspice.5 Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture and stir until just incorporated.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

6 Bake: Pour batter into a buttered loaf pan. Place in a 350°F (175°C) oven and bake for 1 hour. Note that because of the chocolate chips that melt in the bread as it cooks, it’s hard to check for doneness using a tester that you insert. One way to test is to gently push the center top of the chocolate banana bread down with your finger. If it feels relatively firm and bounces back when you release your finger, that’s a good sign that it’s done. 

Then let it cool now the thing is you really don’t want to rush this but it doesn’t extremely matter how long you let it cool as long as it is at least for 10 minutes now I left mine for 15 and it was completely cool but I would at least do it for 10. Then You can cut pieces and share it with your friends or just eat it yourself!

Enjoy! 😉


My review: 

I really liked this it was soft fluffy and also moist, you always want to moist cake or loaf because then you would just have a gross dry cake or loaf, like this one time I made a dry cake it was gross and I didn’t eat it. Anyways I think that this is a great morning breakfast or maybe a snack. I like to eat banana bread for breakfast so that is what I would do, but you guys can choose.
