Eggless Chocolate Banana Bread

Baking is addicting :) Believe me it is a huge stress buster and when you have appreciative audience ready to finish off and praise what comes out of the oven...

I have fallen in love with the smell of banana bread. The bread came out well, moist in the centre. I did not had any nuts to add to the recipe, after tasting it felt nuts would have made it much better :)

You need:
Dry Ingredients:
All purpose flour - 1.75 cups
Unsweetened Cocco powder - 0.25 cup (I used regular)
Sugar granulated - 0.75 cup
Baking powder - 1.5 tsp
Baking soda - 0.5 tsp
Salt - 0.25 tsp
Unsweetened chocolate chips - 0.25 cup

Wet Ingredients:
Curd - 0.25 cup
Butter unsalted - 0.5 cup (measured, melted and cooled)
Ripe Banana Mashed - 1.75 cup
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp


Preheat oven to 350F/180C
Grease a loaf pan
In a bowl mix in the dry indgredients
In another bowl mix the wet ingredients
Fold in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients
Fold in the chocolate chips
The mixture would be very thick and just scrape this into the greased pan
Bake for 50 -55 mins or till a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
Take the pan out and let it cool on a wire rack for 15 mins
