Chocolate Banana Bread

banana bread

I’m here again.. I miss my blog soooo much…

I’ve been gone for a while again, but I have a good reason for that (promise).

But I’m back being a stay home wife/mum again for now, so…. yeah.

And for some reasons my writing skill has gone worse now (if you noticed). Too much happening at once, my brain about to explode and made my migraine happily come back to me for 2 days.

But I’m fine now.

In this post I’m going to share a recipe that I saw in pinterest (dangerous place that site) a while ago. Of course the original photos and result much better than mine.

FYI, I took the photos my self. I was impatient. And husband was at work. I had no choice but to take it my self. So please excuse the weird angle or poor light. Because (I’m sure I’ve mentioned this many times now) I don’t want to take over husband’s job at home as my blog’s photographer ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, let’s take a look at the recipe.

banana bread


  • 2 cups (250g) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (200g) caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup (75g) butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup mashed banana (3 ripe ones)
  • 1/3 cup (100g) sour cream
  • 1/2 cup (110g) melted dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • sesame seed (optional)


How to:

  • Preheat oven to 175ยฐ C. Greaseย bread mould with cooking spray or oil.
  • In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt), set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat sugar and butter together until place and fluffy. Add mashed banana, egg and sour cream. Mix until incorporated. Add flour mixture. Mix well.
  • Divide the batter into two parts.
  • Add chocolate into one part and mix until well combined.
  • Now the fun part, take half of the white batter and pour into the bread mould, And then take half part of the chocolate batter, pour on top of the white batter.
  • Pour the rest of the white batter and then chocolate batter.Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes (I kept checking after 45 minutes).

    I love your recipes! I’m Indonesian too and currently living in Singapore for years. Sometimes I do really miss Indonesian food, but the food that I could find here only ayam penyet, sigh. But then, thank Google for introducing me to your blog, I could find some Indonesian recipes here like “Gulai Ayam Bakar”? OMFG I miss ayam gulai, ayam opor, etc. haha. Thanks for sharing this recipes tho, it’s such an awesome blog. Keep it up!

    • Hai Lidi… makasih udah mampir ya… bukannya di Singapore juga banyak makanan indo kan yah? Dulu sempet tinggal disana juga 6 bulan doang buat trening di bakerzin.. hehehe…
      Salam kenal ya ๐Ÿ™‚

      • lidyachu says

        hehe samasama Mbak (saya boleh panggil gt)? haha. hmm ada beberapa, kaya Tambuah Mas, cm kan saya masih student, jd Tambuah Mas yah considered a bit unaffordable lah Mbak klo buat makan sering2 haha. ada ayam penyet ria, cm saya bosan makan ayam penyet trus, untung muka saya blm penyet haha. sisanya kebanyakan org Singapore attempted to create Indonesian food (ga tahu Indo nya gmn haha). jd liat resep2 Mbak jg bikin saya semangat buat masak sendiri dirumah hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ salam kenal jg Mbak ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Hahaha… Yah, tapi kan masih mending makanannya masih cucok di lidah. Klo disini mah, jangan ditanya. Makanya mau ga mau harus bisa masak.
        Sip deh klo gitu, ini juga resep udah disesuaikan sama keadaan disini, jadi dibikin lebih simple juga ๐Ÿ™‚

        haha bukannya makanan Sweden lumayan ya? sering mampir IKEA soalnya buat makan meatball nya, haha. cm emang rada aneh sih meatball nya pake jam, tp enak2 aja sih haha

      • Ya beti lah sama makanan2 barat yang lain. Pelit bumbu.. hihihi… Lidahnya udah kebiasaan sama makanan yang banyak rempah *wong ndeso* hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

    • I think its just a habit, ever since I was little, I ate banana cake with sesame seeds on top, and until now if make something with banana, I usually add some sesame seeds too.. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hihihi… makasih mba.. kebetulan aja klo emang bagus fotonya, ga ada bakat soalnya ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. Welcome back, Ridha! I just wanted to let you know that your blog inspired mine. I think your pics are better than the original! They’re beautiful. Looks like your hubby isn’t the only one with visual talent….that doesn’t mean you have to take on another responsibility. Pretend that he’s the only one who can do it! Thanks for the gorgeous post!

    • Awww… such a lovely comment, thanks a lot, Amanda ๐Ÿ™‚
      I think I have to keep your comment as a secret from my husband, he might get sad and refuse to help me with the food photos… And it’s not good for me ๐Ÿ˜€

      • It’s ok if wife wants to do it, you just have to put the flash in the same place as every time and use the same settings on the camera, easy :p I still do the post processing that gives the photos their look anyway :p Beside, I prefer to shoot people.

      • No ๐Ÿ˜›
        Too much work for wife. I pay you with sweets all the time anyway :p

  3. What greed!
    And the pictures are really beautiful!!
    Perfect to use some ripe bananas!!
    Thank you and see you soon!
