Marbled Banana Bread

A banana bread, swirled with a chocolate batter and chocolate chips. Needless to say, it was a huge hit at our house! 

  • 3 large bananas – very ripe
  • 1/2 cup better, melted
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups flour, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.
  2. Melt butter in a large bowl in the microwave, and mash the bananas. Whisk in the brown sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Stir in 1 cup of the flour until just combined.
  3. Pour half of the batter into another bowl. In one bowl, stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of flour and cinnamon. In the second bowl, stir in the cocoa powder and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop large spoonfuls of batter into loaf pan – banana/chocolate/banana then chocolate/banana/chocolate. Using a butter knife, make a few figure eights in the batters, marbling them together – but not too much, you want two distinct batters – you don’t want to mix them together.
  5. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, test with a toothpick. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then run a knife around the sides, and turn out onto a rack.
