Here's a twist to the banana bread, incorporating chocolate flavour with the delicious crunchy-ness of chopped nuts. I prefer walnuts for this cake, but any nut will do.

ripe bananas
1 1/4 cups
plain/all purpose flour
1/4 cup
cocoa powder
3/4 cup
1/4 tsp
coffee powder
1 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
baking powder
egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup
melted butter
1/4 cup
finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup
chocolate chips
1 tsp
pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 175C and line a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.

Sift flour with cocoa and coffee powder.

Dust the crushed nuts and chocolate chips with 1 tbsp flour (to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake) and set aside.

Peel bananas and mash them with a fork in a large mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and mix. Next add the egg, sugar and vanilla. Sprinkle salt, baking soda and baking powder over the mixture and stir them in. Add flour, walnuts and chocolate chips last and mix till JUST incorporated. Do not over mix.

Pour into greased pan and bake for about 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

Enjoy!  :)

Hi, sorry but I do not cook or bake using a microwave so am not sure how the temp or time conversion would be.

hello fauzia, plz explain when u write the word ( mix it ) wat do u mean by it ? mix it with hand using fork or beat it with an electric beater. u have used this word in the above recepe also . i wanted to try the above recepe so i want this clarification. i tried ur fudge cake, it turnd out good and tastes more when dusted with icing sugar n drizzled with chocolate syrup.

You can mix with a wooden spoon or spatula or fork or beat with an electric beater, whichever method is fine for this recipe. :)

Stove-top-baking this the zillionth time now...our all time favorite! Bless you dear fauzia!!

is it unsalted butter?

Fauzia's Kitchen Fun's picture

Yes, just chop the bar into very small pieces. Any butter will do for this recipe.

Can I pour the batter into muffins and bake?
