Banana and Chocolate Bread


Banana Bread

I put an SOS out on twitter the other day regarding some black bananas I had in the fruit bowl.  The Ginger Gourmand came to my rescue when she suggested I try her recipe for Banana and Walnut Bread. I tinkered as usual and on my daughters request used one of her milk chocolate Easter Eggs instead of the nuts.

The result is a wonderfully moist bread, which gets better after a few days in the tin!
