Picture a Day #98 – Bananas and Chocolate!

I wanted to bake something for the holiday weekend. Banana bread was on my list, and so was chocolate cake. Realizing that I couldn’t do it all (there were other things on my list as well), I made a creative decision. Why not combine the two?

Remember that pumpkin bread that was more like cake with the chocolate I snuck in? My new recipe is similar. It’s more than a bread, but less than a cake. Almost guilt-free, chocolatey-banana goodness. Is your mouth watering yet?

Double Chocolate Banana Walnut Tea Cakes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Oil four 2-cup Pyrex glass bowls. Mix 4 ripe, mashed bananas, and 2 beaten eggs together in a large bowl. Stir in 2 cups unbleached flour, 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon baking soda.

Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup chocolate chips and blend. Spoon the batter into the oiled bowls and bake for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cooled. A banana- and chocolate-lover’s delight!
