Being a part of a YWAM community gives me the benefit of receiving food donations from time to time. With a pile of sad looking bananas sitting in the kitchen, I decided it was time for banana bread. Not just regular banana bread this time, but with the addition of chocolate.

I found this recipe at It seemed tested and tried, so I gave it a shot too. Like many others, I cut the sugar in half and the bananas I had were really large, so I thought two would be enough. It turned out great, so great that there is hardly any left now...

Chocolate banana bread
Makes 1 loaf


1/2 cup butter, soft

1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1,5 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chocolate chips

- Set oven to 175 C.
- Cream butter, sugar and eggs.
- Stir in mashed bananas and vanilla.
- Sift in flour, baking soda and cocoa; mix well.
- Blend in sour cream and chocolate chips.
- Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for at least 60 minutes.Mine took maybe 1 hour and 15 minutes, but that depends on you oven. 


  1. Banankake blir det rett ofte her nå vi har litt brune og triste bananar liggjande, og ja det er supergodt!

  2. In addition to food donation, we have fruit trees at YWAM Grimerud. And in addition to that, we get food-donations from other people´s fruit trees. I have been «flittig» and have pealed, pitted and frozen a lot of plums for us to make smoothies form for the rest of the year. You might be able to get some next time you come visit.
    My recipies is kinda «slump».
