Girlichef's Chocolate Banana loaf with Kahlua!



Girlichef made a dynamite Chocolate Chocolate Chip Banana Bread which just begged to be adapted for Kahlua week. You can find her recipe here.

The ingredients are the same except I substituted Kahlua for the vanilla extract (and I added an additional teaspoon ;-)

Here's what you'll need:

1 c. sugar

2 lg. eggs

1/3 c. vegetable oil

3/4-1 c. mashed bananas (from 2 super-ripe bananas)

2 tsp. Kahlua

1 1/2 c. flour

1/2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 c. chocolate chips (all one or 1/2 & 1/2 semi-sweet & milk)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or spray your loaf pan.

Beat sugar, eggs and oil until fluffy. Beat in bananas and Kahlua.



Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in separate bowl.



Beat into wet ingredients until just combined.


Stir in chocolate chips.


Spoon into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes.



Transfer to wire rack to cool.



It was difficult to wait on it to cool. The chocolate chips were melty...great bread.

OMG! My daughter just asked to buy bananas for fruit salad. I think I'll make sure there are a few left so I can make this.

Beautiful! I wish I liked banana bread, but maybe the Kahlua would distract me from that...

Hi Branch, I hope you are feeling better. I need lessons on Facebook. It confuses me ;-)

Janel, If you like choclate this is agreat bread. It's quite chocolately. But fruit sald sounds pretty darn good. When you mix it up it looks way too thick but I assure you - comes out well.

WC - I know you don't like cooked bananas...but you could make this without banana, maybe use another fruit? I am wanting to try your mincemeat crumble.
