Monday’s Mess

I’m implementing themes for my blogposts.

Mondays are officially “Monday’s Mess.”

Mess referring to a military term for a group of people for frequently eat together.

I’ll post about food we’ve had during the past week.

And probably whatever else I feel like posting.

‘Cause “mess” has so many meanings…

Double Chocolate

Banana Bread

*originally posted on SmittenKitchen


3 medium to large very ripe bananas

1/2 C. butter, melted

3/4 C. dark brown sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1 t. pure vanilla extract

1 t. baking soda

1/4 t. table salt

1/2 t. ground cinnamon

1 C. all-purpose flour

1/2 C. Dutch process cocoa powder

1 C. semisweet chocolate chunks or chips

1. Preheat over to 350°F. Spray a 9 X 5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Whisk in melted butter, then brown sugar, egg, and vanilla.

3. Place baking soda, salt, cinnamon, flour, and cocoa powder in a sifter, and sift over wet ingredients.  Stir together with a spoon just until combined.  Fold in chocolate chunks/chips.

4. Pour into prepared pan, and bake 55-60 minutes, or until a tester comes out relatively clean (a little chocolate chip smear is ok).  Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
