I baked a batch of banana bread for the first time a few weeks ago while Q was away, and since it’s one of his favorite treats, I made it again for his birthday. To fancy it up for the occasion, I tried a chocolate version.
It’s as simple to make as the standard kind, with just a few extra ingredients, and turned out wonderfully dense and not too rich. As indulgent as cake! It was fun to try out, but next time, I think I’ll stick with plain old banana bread – it’s plenty good the way it is.
Chocolate Banana Bread: I used this recipe, swapping out the sour cream for plain yogurt, and using 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead of a full cup. Served warm topped with berries.
