Discover this delicious twist on a traditional favourite, the chocolate banana bread recipe. But first, a story,
I have a confession to make. I left my love in Sydney. His name is Bill. Bill Granger.
I’m not sure how popular Bill is beyond my own immediate environment, so if you don’t know him… well you really should make an effort to. Or at least his recipes. The guy knows how to cook. He has a few cafes scattered throughout Sydney and they make the best ricotta hotcakes, corn fritters and scrambled eggs. Oh and coconut bread. The guy knows how to cook. Oh, I said that already.
A few times a year, when we lived in Sydney, we’d head to Bills for hotcakes/fritters/scrambled eggs, and they never disappointed. One time while we were eating the hotcakes/fritters/scrambled eggs Bill arrived at the cafe and came to talk to us. I was starstruck. It was Bill! AT Bills.
Thankfully, now that we’ve moved away, I still have most of Bill’s cookbooks… so I’m not without his scrumptious goodies. I’ve made this banana bread recipe many, many times and it never disappoints. At first I thought it was weird to pair chocolate and banana bread. But once I tried it, I was disappointed that I hadn’t for all those banana-bread-making years.
