TWD: Cocoa-Nana Bread



I actually did this one early! Woo hoo!


This week's Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Steph of Obsessed with Baking.

This recipe called for the most cocoa that I've ever used in one single recipe I'm pretty sure. 1 cup for one loaf. I doubled this recipe and was able to squeeze out three good-sized loaves.

I unfortunately didn't have quite enough bananas, so my bread was a little dry, but other than that, it was pretty good. And I loved hitting a chocolate chip in the bread. It was like a treasure hunt.


My house-mate had asked me what I was making, and I told him it was a cocoa banana bread, but he must have only heard the banana bread part because he was quite worried when he saw the dark loaves. He thought they were severely burnt! But no, these are just very laden with cocoa and dark, dark, dark.


Now I was so proud of myself for making this bread early that I didn't even think about posting about it until it came time to eat the last few pieces for breakfast. My hubby had sliced us up the last hunk, and midway through my first bite, I realized I had totally forgotten to take pictures. So in a rush, I snapped these pictures before I had to gobble up the bread and head out the door. So a slice, a bite, and some crumbs is all you get.


You'll have to make it yourself or check out the other TWDers if you want to see a full loaf! So get to it! :)

Yeah, I think it was the most cocoa I have ever used in a single recipe, too. It was so good though!

This is my first visit to this blog and I love the kinds of items you have on it, but I can't figure out how to view the recipes. When I click on the title, it just takes me to a page with pictures of the item and comments below it, but I can't find the recipe. Help! Thanks...
