This week's recipe selection "Black and White Banana Loaf" was chosen by Ashlee of A Year in the Kitchen. If you would like the recipe, it will be available at Ashlee's blog.
I was excited about the recipe for this week for two reasons: 1) I have a brand new bread pan purchased a couple of weeks ago and 2) I had some bananas in a rather sad state that found new life in this cake. My oven does not like cakes, having a tendency to brown and burn the sides of the cake and to leave the middle doughy, so I baked this in my little toaster oven.
I haven't used a marbling technique in a very long time, and enjoyed mixing the banana batter with the chocolate and alternating blops of dough in the bread pan. The flavor of the chocolate is wonderful....melting bakers chocolate is truly a wonderful thing!
This cake is rich, delicious and well worth making!
