I'll try to keep this one short and sweet because it's a no-brainer. When I saw double chocolate banana bread pop up on Smitten Kitchen recently, I knew I had to make it asap. I'm guessing there's a good chance you might also be a fan of the site and felt a similar urge if you saw it too.
My husband and I already have a favorite banana bread recipe, one I slightly adapted from Molly Wizenberg's book. As nearly perfect as that banana bread with chocolate is, I've wanted to make a double-chocolate version because I naturally feel the urge to add more chocolate to things! I thought about taking that recipe and tinkering with it to incorporate cocoa but my ideas were vague ones that floated around in my head without a clear direction. Well, the answer came with this concrete recipe from Smitten Kitchen; not only did it look scrumptious but you just know you can trust Deb.
She didn't let me down. This double-chocolate banana bread was as good as I expected and I had high expectations. It's chocolate cake, it's banana bread, it's both melded together but still standing individually on its own. This is moist, dark, rich, delicious chocolate-banana cake. Make it, enjoy it, and let's thank Deb together.
