double chocolate banana bread

Remember how I used to post recipes on the blog? Yeah, me neither. Cooking has slowed down a little bit over the summer, but really it's just difficult to pull out the camera at dinner time when there are a dozen other things to do to get the food on the table and everyone's tummies happy. I really love cooking, baking and photographing food so I still try to sneak it in when I can. 

I'm kind of over summer, so in an effort to make it feel like fall in my kitchen I made some quick bread. I've made this recipe a few times and it has always turned out. 

Double Chocolate Banana Bread
King Arthur Flour


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 T. cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 t. vanilla 
  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium bananas)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chips 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two mini loaf pans. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. In a separate bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the vanilla, banana, and sour cream. Gently mix in the dry ingredients and chocolate chips until well incorporated. Pour batter into pans and bake for 45-55 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then turn out to cool completely.
