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! ;)
wowzers! this bread is so good, i made it exactly as stated and it is so yummyyyyy. I got 8 mini loaves out of it . Cooked them for 34 minutes... ty for posting this recipe.. Using them for my xmas gift baskets...Will be making this one often..adaeserves more than 5 stars :)
These are very delicious. I was able to make 24 muffins using this recipe. I made 12 as stated. I added coconut and walnuts to the remaining muffin batter. I also added a whole bag (12oz) of chocolate chips instead of just a cup. The muffins took 18 minutes to bake.
This is the lowest review I have ever given... I'm so sorry it just wasn't at all what I thought was promised. I followed the directions EXACTLY (which is strange for me) and I ended up with very very moist (2) loaves which was great, but the flavor just didn't do anything for my family or friends. It was soo bland.. it didn't really have a banana or a chocolate flavour... Maybe it was something I did wrong (don't think so) but this was just not very flavourful.
WOW! This is really good! Very rich - you don't need to eat a lot of it to get your chocolate fix!
This recipe was a big hit in our house. We particularly enjoyed it toasted (in the oven; I don't think it would hold together well enough for the toaster). My husband particularly liked the texture of the chocolate chips interspersed with the overall cake-like feel.
