Banana-Chocolate Tea Bread

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter and gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with vigor after each addition. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; sift together. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture, blending well. Add vanilla. Stir in banana, sour cream, walnuts and chocolate morsels.

Spoon batter into two, greased and floured 7-1/2 x 3 x 2-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350°F for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for approximately ten minutes (be patient, you rascal). Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack or cool cookie sheet.

Yield: 2 loaves
