TWD: Cocoa-Nana Bread

"Cake. Mmmmm. I want one more piece. Just. One. More. Fucking. Piece."
This is a quote from Sleep Talkin' Man, a blog about an English man that talks in his sleep and says really odd stuff. I recently stumbled on this blog and it's hilarious, it sure makes me smile :) Anyways, this quote expresses exactly what I though of this weeks challenge for Tuesdays with Dorie.


Steph of Obsessed with Baking picked the Cocoa-Nana Bread for us to bake this week. I love Steph's blog and wasn't very surprised to find out that she picked this recipe simply because I have seen loads of different Banana Bread recipes pop up on her blog, like this one, one with blueberries (that's light too!), one by Cook's Illustrated, one from the Silver Palate Cookbook and most recently the Chocolate Chip Banana Bread. In fact I think Steph should change the name of here blog to Obsessed with Baking Banana Bread!!!


This Cocoa-Nana Bread is amazing, my sucky pictures don't do it any justice!!! I only had a tiny bit: about 1/4 of a slice, simply because my colleagues loved this so much that they devoured it in absolutely no time! In fact when my mom told that she wanted to bake something last Saturday I persuaded her to bake this bread, so I could have another slice! Some people in the P&Q-section where concerned about the banana's. In my opinion the taste of the bananas was more of an afterthought: but I liked how moist they made the bread. This is another keeper: I will be making it again soon, if not tomorrow! So thanks Steph, for picking this scrumptious Cocoa-Nana Bread!!
The recipe can be found at Steph's blog, go here to find out what the other TWD-ers thought of this recipe. Here are the TWD-recipes for February, it's gonna be a great month:

Hi Marthe! Just saw your comment on my blog. I'm excited that you're adopting me. Thanks for the kind words about my blog. Even though it's pretty, I still have a lot to learn. I've only been blogging since last August. Have a great day!
