Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

A yummy variation of the Banana Bread recipe I posted earlier. :D 

3 cups flour
1 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp almond extract 
6 bananas

3/4 cups of Chocolate Chips 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Butter and lightly dust a bundt pan with cocoa powder.**
In a bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
In your mixer's bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add in the eggs, vanilla, almond extract, and bananas.
Slowly add in the flour mixture, but don't over beat. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour batter into the bundt pan and tap the pan on the counter a couple of times to remove any air bubbles. 
Take the top rack out of the oven and bake on middle rack for approx. 70 minutes.  I use a long wooden skewer to test for doneness.  Cool ten minutes in the pan on a rack and then place a large plate over top and flip cake. Leave to cool with pan on. The chocolate chip banana bread may be frosted with chocolate but I like mine plain.  As always have fun with it and make it your own. :D

**You can also use four foil pans that you can find at the dollar store.  They are approx. 8 x 3 x 2 in size.  These are great for freezing for later or to give away to family and friends.  I bake them on the middle rack at 325 convection for about 40 minutes.  I will switch them around at 20 minutes.
