Banana Chocolate Bread Marbled

A classic favorite, chocolate and banana. It's an  easy recipe that anyone can attempt. For healthier version,  you can use whole wheat flour and brown sugar.

This bread will keep for a couple of days in an airtight container and can also be frozen, It is a great companion with a cup of tea/coffee or a glass of milk. You can easily turns this into a delectable dessert when paired with  chocolate sauce or vanilla ice cream.

Yield    :    One loaf

2 1/4  cup all purpose flour
1/4  cup  melted butter
1  cup  sugar
1  cup  mashed banana
3/4  cup  milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
2  tablespoon  unsweetened cocoa
3  tablespoon  water


* Sift flour, salt and baking soda. Grease a loaf pan and preheat oven @ 175 C.

* In a separate bowl, combine milk, butter, mashed banana and vanilla.

* Now combine flour and milk mixture, stir until just combined. Remove 1 cup of batter into a bowl.

* Combine cocoa with water, add this to 1 cup of batter.

* Spoon plain batter alternately with cocoa batter into loaf pan. Repeat until all batter is used up. Swirl with the knife.

If only I could live on sweet breads, I would bake one every day! And this one would be at the top of my list. Looks so moist from banana, then swirled with chocolate! Perfection.
