TWD : Cocoa-Nana Bread


Steph of Obsessed with Baking chose Cocoa-Nana Bread this week and in spite of all the things I made to it it came out very very (VERY) good !
I must say I'm a banana keeper, I don't throw away things with pleasure (Andrea is laughing), so when it comes to overripe bananas I peel them, put them in a plastic bag and stack them in the freezer. The problem is that I have so many now I should have a banana drawer !!
And Steph came to rescue me choosing a banana bread recipe that doesn't taste like bananas !
Because, of course, my kids do not like banana bread but love chocolate !
I read in the P&Q section of many TWDers who do not like chocolate and bananas but I urge you to try this bread It's deliciously moist thanks to the bananas 'but' the flavour is great !


This is what I'm doing instead of baking, is it getting better ?

It looks like you're doing magic on that piece!
I'm laughing because I know I have 5 bananas in the freezer too at the moment.
Chocolate banana bread is lovely.

Your bread looks devine, and glad it was something your children would eat. Your craft project is lovely. I baked and sewed today because it was a public holiday and I had the time.

Banana drawer? Made me laugh. Maybe because I have a gallon ziplock bag full of frozen overripe bananas.

Your craft project is amazing.

I could certainly use a banana drawer in my freezer. Your cake looks delicious!

Natalia, I couldn't throw away a banana either! You will need to make more of this bread to use up some of the bananas in your freezer!

Jessica said...

I'm glad your kids like the bread. Maybe now you have a way to use up some of your bananas in the freezer? I hate to throw things away, too.

Your project is just lovely. I hope you post a picture of the finished piece!
