Chocolate Banana Loaf Cake texture

I have always loved bananas and chocolate together. This Chocolate Banana Loaf cake or bread is a great accompaniment to your cup of coffee or even breakfast. This banana bread is irresistibly moist and intensely chocolatey with the texture of a brownie. It absolutely melts in your mouth.

Tips to make the perfect Chocolate Banana Bread –

  • Use ripe bananas – Ripe bananas give the great flavour and moistness to the cake. See how to ripen bananas below.
  • Eggs at room temperature – Room temperature eggs fluff up better than cold eggs.
  • Use Dutch process Cocoa powder for more moist and darker bread.
  • Good quality Choco chips

How to Ripen Bananas:

  • Quick Oven Method: If your bananas are a little green and you want them to ripen quick, place bananas on a baking sheet and bake at 120˚C for 15 to 20 minutes depending on the initial ripeness of the bananas.
  • 24 Hour Counter Method: If you are willing to wait 1 day, you can place the bunch of bananas (without separating them) in a paper bag, cover and leave at room temperature. Bananas emit ethylene which causes ripening.

Storing

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for upto 3 days. Should last for up to 7 days in a refrigerator. You can also freeze the cake wrapped well and in an airtight container for about 2 months.
