Chocolate Banana Bread – 2009.44

Tyler Florence definitely has a winner on his hand! This tastes like a brownie in bread form. So good.
Wasn’t too rich, you could see chunks of banana in it. We didn’t have any vanilla, so substituted coconut extract – and it made it taste very “tropical”. So yum. We made it in 8 little loaves so Mom could give them away!
From Tyler Florence’s Ultimate.

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, melted (used Hershey’s Dark)
2 eggs
3 ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla (or coconut like we used)

Grease loaf pan (350 degrees).
Mix dry. Cream wet. Add together – don’t overmix.
Bake for about 55 minutes (for regular pan) or 40 for small pans. Just check it.
Very good!
For 12 slices: 283 calories, 12 fat, 2 fiber. This would be good for a special dessert with cool whip or ice cream and sliced bananas, maybe some shaved chocolate and coconut.
