Just a couple months back, we saw Banana breads trending crazy on all social media platforms.
It was one of the baked items A LOT of people worldwide enjoyed making this year while staying at home during the lockdowns.
Being a quick, easy and flexible cake which can be altered in so many different ways, I am not surprised why people love Banana breads so much.
However, this Double Chocolate Banana bread, has my heart!
It’s been my most loved Banana bread recipes for years now. It is dense, rich with chocolate and has the right amount of Banana flavour, sure makes for a perfect accompaniment during teatime.
Would really recommend you to try it out and don’t forget to comment below, letting me know what you think!
