"I love banana bread, and I love bananas combined with chocolate. Which means this sounds fabulous to me. I found the recipe in a fundraiser cookbook for Stray Rescue of St. Louis. The recipe was credited to Caitlin Deneau."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Grease a loaf pan (or spray with cooking spray).

Step 3

Mix sugar, bananas, oil (or applesauce sub) and eggs into a large bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour batter into pan.

Step 4

Bake until wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean, 60-70 minutes.

Step 5

Let cool 10 minutes, then loosen the sides of the pan using a knife and remove loaf. I remove the loaf by placing a cooling rack on top of the loaf pan, flipping it over using pot holders, then quickly turning the bread back rightside up. Cool completely before slicing.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Love this recipe. DDinlaw asked me to bring banana bread to brunch after my granddaughters baptism. I made 4 mini-loaves. I struggle making 1 big loaf as I never seem to be able to get it to bake in the middle without the sides getting too done. Perfect little recipe. Thanks Karen~
