Banana bread with chocolate and pecan nuts

Banana bread with chocolate and pecan nuts

I’ll let you guess my favorite ingredients during confinement… In fact, just take a look at my latest publications to see that I have chocolate at home – it’s still the main thing!- , pecans-thanks to the promo just before-, and bananas. Well, these ended up ripe to the point. So, I prepared several recipes. There were the pancakes, the spread and of course, I couldn’t miss a banana bread.

This isn’t the first banana bread recipe I’ve posted here. But I love it! And the last one I prepare is even better than the previous one. And each time, I can’t resist the urge to offer it to you. But I know you love it too.

As always, the banana bread recipe is child’s play to make, and a treat to taste. Just choose good, ripe bananas. The rest is just a mix. This cake is absolutely inescapable.

To finish: I can’t resist the urge to put you a “making-of” photo of the shooting of my banana bread. And yes, it’s my cat who is the andouille behind.
Here it is, it’s a gift!
