I just made this recipe and followed it exactly, except that I used mini semisweet chips. The break is very tender and moist -- more like a cake than a banana bread, which is fine with me. My only complaint is that the chocolate flavor is not strong enough, but my husband will likely prefer that. I'll try the whole wheat/applesauce version next time, and maybe try the regular chips.
Love this bread! I can't believe I haven't reviewed it before now as I've made it several times. I usually make 2 loaves out of it and use semisweet chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate. I also use low-fat sour cream and have also used part plain yogurt before, too. Thank you for the great recipe!
Very yummy. I only give it 4 stars as mine didn't stay together well when I cut it. It all crumbled into pieces, even after leaving it to cool.
These cupcakes were great. I did change the sugar in the recipe for 1/2 sugar and 1/2 splenda. It is a keeper. Thanks for sharing Miss Diggy.
~*Miss Diggy*~, What a lovely treat allot more like a cake than a bread but nevertheless wonderful. I followed the directions and made no alterations to the recipe. My chocolate chips did not fall to the bottom as I dredged them in flour. I will definitely be adding chopped pecans next time and icing to the banana bread as to me this banana bread is more like a cake brownie. I will bake this recipe in a bunt pan and serve with ice creme or whipped creme. Thank you for posting a truly original recipe!
Excellent! Moist and delicious. Thanks for posting.
A great recipe. However it's more ingredient & labour intensive than similiar recipes I've made, so I wouldn't make this particular recipe again. Still, the loaf was dense and moist, with an obvious banana flavour. If you're looking for a chocolate & banana fix, you can't go wrong.
Sorry Emeril.... His recipe used to be my favorite banana bread... but this one is SO much better, stays moist and the chocolate is fantastic! This is the best banana bread I have tasted, and believe me, I tried dozens of different recipes!!!!
I made this last year for my son to bring to school for his birthday. He loved it and asked that I make it again this year. When I told the teacher I was bringing in a treat for him to share she asked if it was the same bread I made last year because she loved it too! I guess I should start making it more than once a year! ;)
