Great comfort food: Chocolate chocolate chip sour cream banana bread

October 12, 2010 at 8:45 pm 2 comments

We bought a bunch of bananas on sale the other day, and they turned brown and heavily spotted in only one day. My husband was sad, but I was secretly thrilled. I hadn’t made this in a couple of years, but remembered it being like a moist chocolate cake and heavenly.

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1.5 cups white sugar
  • .5 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons flavored alcohol (we used cherry brandy. You could use vanilla extract)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1.5 cups milk chocolate chips
  • Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla together.
  • Then add the eggs and mix.
  • Then put in the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Add the bananas and sour cream and mix.
  • Then add in the chocolate chips and pour into 3 greased loaf pans.
  • Bake at 350 for 1 hour, or until a toothpick that has been inserted into the center comes out clean.

I served this topped with chocolate buttercream frosting. Decadent, delicious, and basically chocolate cake with potassium. 🙂
