CHOCOLATE BANANA BREAD: National Banana Bread Day

Today is National Banana Bread Day! I adore Chocolate and Bananas, so any recipe with these ingredients works for me. This is an easy delicious recipe for Chocolate Banana Bread. Since this recipe is from Godiva, I suggest using Godiva Dark Chocolate.


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup alkalized unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
Pinch of salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream
4 bars (1.5 ounces each) Godiva Dark Chocolate, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter bottom and sides of 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
In medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
Beat butter and sugar in mixing bowl 2 minutes or until light, using electric mixer at medium-high speed. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. Add bananas and vanilla extract at low speed, mixing until combined.
Add flour mixture alternately with sour cream. Add chopped chocolate and blend just for a few seconds.
Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top. Bake 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of bread comes out clean.
Cool in pan set on wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on rack.
