TWD: Coco-Nana Bread

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by Steph of Obsessed with Baking. She chose Coco-Nana Bread. I was excited about this week's pick, first because it's a really simple recipe (no layered bars, 4-part cakes, frosting...), and second because I love the combination of chocolate and banana. But according to the P&Q on the TWD site, I am one of just a few. I love bananas and chocolate sauce with ice cream, chocolate chip banana bread... yum. This bread is like Dorie says - the chocolate is the main flavor, but then the banana kicks in, and you can taste both.
The batter is easy to make. I used some new muffin top papers I got. The batter made twelve muffin tops and six cupcake-sized heart-shaped cakes. I should have followed the directions in the book and stacked two baking sheets, but I only used one, so my bottoms burned. Strangely, they didn't taste very burned, they were just black. But they were yummy, and I might make this recipe again if I have a chocolate-banana craving :D
If you want the recipe, you can buy the AMAZING book or find it here on Steph's blog. Enjoy!
