Choc Chip Banana Bread with Chocolate Ganache

There is nothing better than a freshly baked piece of banana bread. Or is there? How about we stuff the banana bread full of choc chips and then drizzle it in a decadent chocolate ganache?

This is Next Level Banana Bread.

Banana Bread

  2. Place the flour, dark choc chips, sugar, coconut and bicarbonate of soda in a large mixing bowl. Stir until combined.
  3. Combine the banana, milk, butter and eggs in a medium bowl. Add to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  4. Pour mixture evenly among prepared pans.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the bread comes out clean.
  6. Turn onto a wire rack to cool.
Chocolate Ganache
  1. Bring the cream and butter to boil in a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and stir until smooth and glossy.
  3. Pour the ganache over the banana bread. It will set as it cools.

I originally created this recipe for Cook Suck as a transformation from this monstrosity that someone proudly uploaded to Facebook. I think my version is a little more appetising, yes?
