Almond Banana Chocolate Bread

It's still warm and smells so good.

While I was looking for something quick and fast for breakfast and also wanted to use up the Bananas that were overripe. So on Googling landed on this lovely site.

I made it eggless as usual and with a few changes so am giving the ingredients here in the same order.

Ingredients

1/2 cup almonds coarse
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Cadbury's cocoa powder
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I skipped it)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup Oil
2 ripe bananas sliced
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence

Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl. In another bowl mix in all the wet ingredients like oil, milk, vanilla essence, banana slices and sugar. Beat with a spatula till sugar dissolves. To this liquid mix add the dry mix slowly and fold in the flour.

Oil the bread pan and dust it with flour. Tap the pan upside down to remove excess flour.

Bake the loaf for 30 mins or till an inserted needle comes out dry. Cool completely and turn it out into a tray. Slice it carefully and serve with more sliced banana.

I like to have the banana slices in the bite as they taste divine but this bread has to be consumed in 3 days even if refrigerated. If mashed banana is used it gives a dry loaf that has a better shelf life. Decide what you want shelf life or taste and then follow.

The coarse almond powder gives a nice texture to the loaf besides making it light.

This Almond Banana Chocolate bread is something I'm going to bake soon for my nephew Pranav. He mostly will name it ABC Bread. That's him.
