For this weeks edition of Tuesdays with Dorie, Steph of Obsessed with Baking chose Cocoa-Nana Bread, page 46. I was eager to try this because I am a big lover of banana bread. Not so much of chocolate (though I do like it) but it's not my favorite thing to eat.
I made half a recipe and then made that into 2 mini loaves. Trying to get as much banana flavor as possible, I used 2 bananas instead of just one. Other than that, I made the recipe as written.
I really wanted to like this bread. Really, I did. I love bananas. I like chocolate. I love bananas and chocolate together (chocolate covered banana anyone?). This however, I did not like. It was way too rich and dense. I felt like I was eating a bar of dark chocolate. It was a little better when warm but not much. I couldn't taste the bananas at all.
It almost reminds me of a Milky Way Bar in appearance when it's sliced.
I'm sure the chocoholics among us would love this recipe but unfortunately...I'm not a chocoholic. I'd rather have a nice banana bread with chocolate chips mixed in.
Thanks to Steph for choosing this week! I'm sorry I wasn't a fan!
