Chocolate Banana Bread


Serving Size:



  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 small ripe bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup good-quality dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 8 x 4 inch loaf pan and line with parchment paper.

Cream butter, then beat in sugars until pale and creamy.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.

Add vanilla, then bananas, chocolate and sifted flour and baking powder.

Mix until just combined.

Pour into prepared pan and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack to cool. Serve in thick slices with butter. Yum.


  • You probably have school-battered bananas coming home in lunch-boxes or molding quietly in the fruit bowl, this is a fantastic use for them.
