Choco pecan banana bread

      Good Morning ... And yet another weekend has quickly passed by ,, here comes the MONDAY.. We experience very bad MONDAY NEILS (Blues). Neil is not at all happy when his dad cant any longer play with him. So I need to make something special to take him put of his blues.... And what better than a piece of warm just baked chocolate loaf... We dont eat non veg on mondays.. Hence this is the eggless choco banana nutty loaf

Neil enjoys this warm loaf on Monday morning.. Its soft and moist cake with little chocolate surprises. the loaf tastes best when its just warm , fresh outta oven. If you are going to consume it later, I suggest to warm it for few seconds in microwave before eating it. It is also a perfect tea time loaf to have with afternoon tea.

Serves: 8 pieces
  • 1 ½ cup of all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 ripe large bananas
  • ½ cup curd
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • ½ cup pecans/ walnuts
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • Preheat oven at 180 C degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix curd with oil till it becomes smooth. Add brown sugar and mix well. Add mashed bananas and mix well.
  • Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl
  • Now sift the flour mixture in the liquid mixture and fold it nicely till it comes together and you cant see any dry flour. The mixture is quite lumpy, thats the way it should be.
  • Add the chopped pecans/ walnuts and chocolate chips.
  • Grease a 9' x 5" loaf pan and line with parchment paper and pour the lump mixture into it.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 180 C/ 350F for an 45 minutes or until a tester inserted comes out clean. 
  • Cut the pieces after the cake cools down a bit.
