Chocolate Banana Bread

Chocolate Banana BreadA delicious moist no-kneading required bread perfect for dessert.  In time for the holiday season I share my twist on the traditional banana bread recipe.

Ingredients: 2 cups of mashed bananas (typically 5/6), 1.5 cups of sugar, 1 cup of oil, 4 eggs, 3.25 cups of flour, 0.50 cup of dark cocao, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1.5 tsp of baking soda, 0.25 tsp of cinnamon powder, 0.25 tsp of cardamon powder, pinch of salt, 5 tbsps of chopped cashew nuts, 4 tbsps of chopped flame rasins, plus chopped almonds for the top.

Mix in one bowl the bananas, oil and sugar and all the other ingredients in a second bowl.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet, folding it in.  Pour batter into an 8 x 12 pan, and sprinkle crushed/chopped almonds on top.  Bake in pre-heated oven at 360 degrees for 40 minutes Check with a toothpick to make sure bread has finished baking – nothing sticks to the pick – before removing from oven

Note: I put wax paper down first, before adding batter to the baking pan, so that it is easy to remove the finished product.
