Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Quick Bread

When you cannot decide whether to have chocolate or banana or peanut butter, have them all in one cake! Quick bread, in this case :)

Recipe is from IG @neuroticmommy
What you need:
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
3 medium bananas, mashed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cooking oil (I used rice bran)
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 bananas, sliced for topping
a mixture of sugar and brown sugar to caramelize the bananas for topping
Option for topping: drizzle of melted warm peanut butter, and melted dark chocolate
  • Preheat oven to 175degC. Grease and line loaf pan (20x10cm)
  • Mix in peanut butter, banana, vanilla, oil, eggs. In another bowl, mix in sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour
  • Pour in wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined
  • Bake for about an hour until the skewer test comes out clean
  • For the banana topping: In a small glass pot, combine sugar mixture and sliced bananas and cook over low heat til sugar melted and slightly caramelized
  • Just before serving, scoop the topping over the slice and serve. Best to serve warm

This post is for LBT (Let's get Baking Together), a baking group which I joined years back, and when I searched for my last participation it was May 2014! Gosh! Hope I don't miss much :)
This month's theme is banana cake. Enjoy!
