Chocolate Banana Bread

Tyler's Chocolate Banana Bread

I know this one has been posted several times for the Tyler's Friday Blog but who can resist Chocolate and Banana! I think next time some peanut butter mixed in would be awesome. The bread was chocolatey and moist, the bananas were not too overpowering. Although Chris described it as having too much chocolate I didn't think that those words could be used in a sentence together. Please try this one as it was great. 

Chocolate Banana Bread

2 cups All Purpose Flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
4 oz milk chocolate, melted
2 eggs
3 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat to 350. Whisk flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. 

Beat butter to creamy then beat in chocolate, eggs, bananas, and vanilla on low. Stir in flour mixture just till combined. Pour into buttered loaf pan. Bake 50 min or until done. Cool in pan 15 min and then to rack to cool completely.
