Chocolate Marble Banana Bread

I had some very ripe bananas last week, and thought I should make up banana bread. But then I didn’t want to make the same banana bread I made before even though it’s a classic and very yummy.

On to the search. Was a quick search on Pinterest when I spotted this: Two-Tone Banana Bread

It was pretty easy to make and LOOKS and tastes heavenly!  I changed a couple things in the recipe, or rather omitted a couple things from the original recipe. The taste was still very good.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoong round cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (5 medium) (I used 4 large, still turned out fine)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled

 Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, lemon peel, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, mashed bananas, sugar, melted butter, and rum. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Transfer one-third of the batter (about 1-1/4 cups) to a medium bowl; fold in melted chocolate.

3. Drop alternating spoonfuls of plain and chocolate batters into the prepared pan. Using a table knife or narrow metal spatula, gently cut through batters to marble.

4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning.

5. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. If desired, serve with chocolate-hazelnut spread. Makes 16 servings.
