WITH CHOCOLATE CHUNKS & DECADENT ICING

During the pandemic, banana bread had its moment. It’s quick and easy, but it can be a little ho-hum. This recipe, I promise you, is anything but boring. It has nice chunks of chocolate, it’s rich and moist, AND it has a swirl of gooey icing to take it over the top. I got this recipe from my friend Anita, whose mom Janet makes it best. My version is almost as good. Here is the Best Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe Ever

BEST CHOCOLATE BANANA BREAD

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Serving Size: 6-8

INGREDIENTS

1 1/4 cups sugar (I use half applesauce to cut back on sugar and add moistness)

1/2 cup butter

2 eggs

1/2 cup of sour cream

1 cup (heaping) of mashed bananas

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 cup good milk chocolate chips (I prefer Guittard)

1 cup of powdered sugar

2 tsp of milk

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350-degrees. Grease and flour one 9 x 5″ loaf pan. Put parchment paper on the bottom and grease it, too.

Cream sugar and butter; add eggs, sour cream, bananas and vanilla.

Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Add them to the creamed sugar mixture. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Bake for one-hour or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked into the center. In the meantime, mix the powdered sugar with the milk and a dash of vanilla.

When the bread is done, glaze it with the icing. Enjoy!

FINAL THOUGHTS

So, if chocolate is your thing (it is certainly mine, if you haven’t guessed), then be sure to check out our recipes for the Best Chocolate Cake Recipe Ever or our Chocolate Caramel Tart, which was adapted from a Giada De Laurentis recipe and is AMAZING. Cheers.

This recipe is initially from Marilyn Lawrence and was adapted by Janet Lauer and Anita Santoro.

Office vibes— modern combined with a little bit of fancy. My office/studio is more maximal than minimal… The only place in the house where things aren’t reined in…

This is where I display artwork my grandmothers painted, coveted watercolors that my dad gave me, my children’s artwork and notes (my priceless treasures), and baskets full of projects in various stages. Paintbrushes, paint, clay, beads, stone and fabric samples all take center stage here. *More photos to come— including BEFORE & AFTER shots.

Do you have a room that reflects your interests and personality? I would love to hear about it. ☺️

When I’m on vacation, I stop long enough to reflect on life, love, my design business.

Thanks to each one of you for following along! It’s been great making new friends, finding new clients (who most often turn into friends🤍) and sharing all of the things that make me happy— travel, design, art, architecture and, of course, family and friends.

Have a wonderful week! .

Is anyone else ready for the weekend? Have a great one! ...

It’s that time of the year to pamper Mom… Give her a comfy chair, a stack of good books, a candle and fresh flowers to make her day extra relaxing.
