I have recently changed Baby G’s daycare schedule to full day instead of partial day, which means that he basically spends his whole day there now. (Yay to mommy as I get more “me” time to work on my blog, developing, and testing recipes). Because of that, I have started baking more because I would love for him to eat better during his afternoon snack time, instead of the typical store-bought crackers and biscuits, which are not all that nutritious.
Baby G likes to eat bananas and chocolate, so I decided to combine his two favorite ingredients into a cake that he will like. I made this banana chocolate bread, which is adapted from Everyday Food magazine by Martha Stewart. I subscribe to almost all food magazines, but I always find Everyday Food very useful with practical and doable everyday recipes. More importantly, the recipes that I have tried always turn out great.
This banana chocolate bread recipe yields aromatic, moist, and delicious cake. On the third day when we had the last loaf of the banana chocolate cake, it was still soft and moist, just like it was freshly baked! If you’re tired of your same old banana bread, give it an upgrade by adding some chocolate to the cake. The end result is pleasing to adults, kids, and picky toddlers. I cut these banana chocolate bread into bite-sized pieces and packed them into Baby G’s tupperware. It makes me feel happy because I know that he will be eating well during snack time and continue to grow.
