January 26, 2010– Steph of Obsessed with Baking chose Cocoa-Nana Bread, page 46 from Baking from My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
As I looked at this recipe I was fairly shocked at the amount of cocoa. I had to go and buy another container. This is a deep complex almost bitter cake (in the way espresso is bitter but not unpleasant). The banana rounds out the assertive nature of that much cocoa. It has a fine cake like crumb with dark chocolate shards mixed through.
I made mine into individual loaf shapes. I liked them but did not love them. Definitely a recipe to keep in mind as the texture was lovely.
Now go and check the blogroll and see what the other TWD crew thought.
