You would think, with my penchant for all things chocolate, and adding in the fact that I love bananas, that this bread would have been a total hit for me. Well, the Cocoa Nana Bread – a ‘quick’ bread (mixes quickly, but takes a considerable amount of time to bake up) concoction of cocoa, chocolate, bananas and other similar ingredients to banana bread – was chosen by Steph of Obsessed with Baking. This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, sadly, was not my favorite. I liked it fine – but I just didn’t love it. I’m really not sure why. It wasn’t too dry, too moist, too banana-y or too chocolatey (as if that could happen). It was just kind of *meh* for me. Really, really weird reaction – and it still has me confused.
TWD: Cocoa Nana Bread
The batter itself was easy and even fun to make. A joy to work with and behaved exactly as I expected it to. No problems whatsoever. It just wasn’t my thing right now.
I blame it totally and solely on my pregnant taste buds and the mood I was in when I made it or something because I’m really and truly stumped as too why I didn’t want to just devour this whole loaf. I think that this recipe is definitely worth a try, and once I’ve got some time and/or energy back once we settle into a routine after the baby is here that I will have to revisit this.
