Triple Chocolate Banana Bread

Triple Chocolate Banana Bread

Triple Chocolate Banana Bread – the ultimate banana bread for a chocoholic. Which means, this is the prefect banana bread for me. When you browse through my recipes, you will see I have a ‘slight’ favor for banana bread. I’ve tried numerous variations. One of my all time favourites has been the Banana Hazelnut Snack Cake, quite amazing taste due to the ground hazelnuts that I used instead of flour. The runner up, following very close, is my Marbled Chocolate Banana Bread. But this Triple Chocolate Banana Bread beats them all.

Triple Chocolate

So, what makes this a Triple Chocolate? Well, there a generous piece of good dark chocolate, cocoa powder for an even deeper chocolate flavour and on top of it all: dark chocolate chips throughout the bread. Addictive, is all I can say. Make this bread at your own risk. If you have some (over)ripe banana’s lying on your kitchen counter and you have no idea what to do with them? Make this utterly delicious and very easy to prepare banana bread.

Ingredients

2 medium (over)ripe bananas (the darker the skin, the sweeter, the better)

2 eggs

250 ml buttermilk (no buttermilk at hand? Add a bit of vinegar to regular milk (ca. 1 tbsp per 500 ml) and let sit for about 10 minutes)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tbsp honey (depending on the ripeness, hence sweetness, of the bananas, you can add more honey if you like)

50 ml vegetable oil

100 g dark chocolate (min 70%)

250 g flour

25 g cocoa powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

100 g chocolate chips (chopping up a piece of dark chocolate works fine as well)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C hot air) and grease a cake tin or line with parchment paper.

Melt the chocolate.

Mash up the banana.

Mix the banana with the milk, eggs, oil, vanilla and honey.

Pour a little bit of the mixture into the melted chocolate and stir.

Add the chocolate to the mixture and mix well.

    Banaan en chocolade zijn een top combinatie!
    En hoewel bananenbrood zo in is, heb ik het nog nooit gegeten!
