Chocolate Banana Bread

I better get this posted because as you can see it has a Halloween background.  This recipe is adapted from  I love chocolate covered bananas so I thought I would give this a try.  The combination is great.  I also added a half cup of chocolate chips, which is optional.  Here's a tip, it's good with vanilla ice cream.  It's kind of like eating an ice cream cake roll. 

Chocolate Banana Bread

1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 large bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.

In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and eggs.  Mix in bananas and vanilla.  Add flour, baking soda and cocoa; mix well.  Blend in sour cream and chocolate chips.  Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes,  or until tester inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.
