A little different take on banana bread with a hint of cocoa and coffee flavor.

Top Review by Bekah49036

I really like the idea of this bread. I'm always looking for ways to use up bananas. However, I baked mine for only 50 minutes and it came out very dry. I would have liked a much stronger chocolate/coffee flavor. Not sure what I was expecting. I will probably try this again with a few changes. Thanks Marie.
