I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone with this one. I know, chocolate banana bread out of someone’s comfort zone!?!? It wasn’t the quickbread part, it was the BANANA part. I HATE bananas! My husband has asked me several times to make him banana bread, but I always so no because I can’t even stand the smell. But, it was about time that I just bit the bullet and mashed some banana’s – while pinching my nose of course 🙂 Here is a shot of the mashed nanas. I used a potato masher and it worked fantastically.
Here are a couple of shots of the batter being made. And as Dorie mentioned, it definitely looked curdled. No worries!
And then I ruined the dough (aka I added the banana’s). One of my favorite parts of baking is tasting the dough… definitely didn’t on this one. I’m sure if you like bananas it would be delish.
Now it looks all chocolately. I was dying to taste the dough by the looks of it!
In the pan and ready to bake! (chocolate chip folding in was done prior)
Out of the oven, and sliced!
My taste testers loved it. I guess I’ll never know 😉
According to the husband, I should make this loaf into muffins next time. I guess if I EVER get a chance to open my dream bakery I will have to sell banana muffins. All in all, I’m proud of myself for facing this challenge.
Next up…. Daring Bakers Reveal!
I will be skipping the next TWD week because I can’t find a mini bundt pan!!!! I’ll be making some cupcakes and cookies instead!
Question: Does anyone else hate bananas??? Or am I the only one!!!
