This Banana Bread Is Proof That Chocolate Makes Everything Better

Melted chocolate elevates your everyday banana bread.

 

Banana bread is good on its own but mixing chocolate in it? Such a simple but genius idea. Here's how to make it:

 

Makes 2 loaves
Prep Time 1 hour
Baking Time 25 to 30 minutes

 
butter for greasing pan
2 cups (220 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
120 grams bittersweet chocolate, chopped (about 2/3 cup)
1/2 cup (112 grams) unsalted butter
1/3 cup and 1 1/2 tablespoons (85 grams) brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup plain yogurt
480 grams mashed overripe bananas (lakatan or Cavendish)
 

 


1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 2 (8x4-inch) loaf pans with butter.



2 Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.



3 Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. When about 2/3 of the chocolate has melted, remove the bowl from heat. Continue stirring until completely melted. Let cool, then transfer to a piping bag with a small round decorating tip (1/4-inch hole). Place the piping bag on its side in a bowl to avoid spilling.



4 In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating 30 seconds after each addition. Add vanilla extract.



5 Set speed to low, then add yogurt. Gradually add mashed bananas. Mix until well combined. Add dry ingredients in 3 additions.



6 Portion batter between two loaf pans. On each pan, pipe melted chocolate in a zigzag or "S" pattern on the surface of the batter, going from left to right. Run a firm toothpick perpendicular to the chocolate pattern, swirling around to form a marbled design.



7 Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
