How To Make sherry's easy, moist chocolate-banana bread

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350. Spray a 9" x 5" loaf pan w/ vegetable oil cooking spray. Place 1 of the oven racks in the center of the oven, ( before pre-heating, lol.)
  • 2
    Using a blender,1st peel ,( from the bottom of the banana,) each banana & put into blender. Puree until smooth, ( it took me about 2 mins to do this.) Place pureed bananas into a large bowl. Stir in melted butter, Light brown sugar & salt. Whisk in beaten eggs & vanilla.

    Do not use a mixer for this recipe, use a good whisk or it will not come out so moist. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon& allspice. Scrape the banana mix into the dry flour mix. Whisk until just combined. Stir in dark chocolate chips. Gently spoon batter into pan & even out w/ a spatula. Bake 1 hr but check for doneness at 50 mins. To test, gently press the center of bread w/ a clean finger. If it feels firm & bounces back when u release the finger, it's done. Let cool on a cooling rack for at least 10 mins.
