Pimp up your banana bread

May 16, 2015

I love banana bread so thank God I already found The Best Banana Bread Recipe on the planet! Banana bread though can be plain-looking especially if baked in a loaf pan so here are a few tips to make decadent rockstar banana bread. No diets allowed.

  1. Add dark chocolate chips (or chopped dark chocolate) and walnuts to your banana bread batter.

    This recipe already lists chocolate chips and nuts as optional ingredients but if I were you, I wouldn't omit them. The chocolate chips add a little surprise when you bite into the bread and the walnuts add some crunch. Also, banana bread slices look more interesting when dotted with chocolate and nuts. I've tried adding mixed nuts instead of walnuts and that works too.

  2. Drizzle with chocolate sauce before slicing.

    I used dark chocolate and white chocolate sauce in the photos. The recipe is simple: heat 1/4 cup of heavy cream and pour into a bowl of 1/4 cup of chocolate chunks with 1 tablespoon of butter; leave for one minute and then stir until melted.

  3. Scoop vanilla ice cream on top of your banana bread slice.

    Because, who doesn't like ice cream?
