Chocolate Chunk Banana Loaf

I found this entry sitting in my drafts folder, I thought I posted it a long time ago…whoops!

I’ve had a few people say that this is not “true” banana bread, because there’s chocolate in this recipe – but trust me, it still has the full flavour of banana’s. The chocolate chunks just add more sweetness and texture to the already moist loaf.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks.   *Don’t use ‘mini’ chips, or milk chocolate chips.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan, and line the bottom with a piece of parchment paper
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg,sour cream and mashed bananas, mix until combined evenly, be sure to scrape down sides of the bowl.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, mix until combined.
  5. In a small bowl, toss the chocolate chips in a tablespoon of flour until they’re coated.  (This will help prevent them from all dropping to the bottom of the batter when baking.) Gently stir the chocolate chips into the batter and then pour it all into the prepared loaf pan.
  6. Bake for approx 1 hour, but it could take an additional 15-20 minutes in some ovens.
  7. Loaf is ready when a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  8.  Remove from pan after 10 minutes and cool on a wire rack. Try…to wait until it’s cooled off before cutting it up into slices. 🙂

Enjoy!

  1. My brother suggested I might like this website.
    He was entirely right. This post truly made my day.
    You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this info!
    Thanks!

  2. This thing was continuously being practiced by the people until
    such time that people have seen already the positive side of wearing an engagement ring before
    the actually marriage. Buying engagement rings online when I was growing up
    in the 70’s. There is still left this lingering question of whether the grading of diamonds in-house is as demanding as it would be if done by independent outside reputable labs.
