“If there’s no chocolate in Heaven, I’m not going.”
― Jane Seabrook, Furry Logic Laugh at Life
so i had totally planned on making my mom’s classic sour cream coffee cake this afternoon, but i got to clicking around on some food blogs… and it took about twenty seconds for me to decide to make this ‘jacked up banana bread’ recipe i came across. i was looking at a blog called Everybody likes Sandwiches… and she was talking about adapting this recipe she had enjoyed from Smitten Kitchen, another blog i enjoy. well, clicking further into recipes on the sandwiches blog, (which i often find myself doing) i discovered she has made three different banana-ish type of breads that left me drooling. i pulled up two of them, and clicked back and forth- yanking them around a bit and taking ingredients from each… tweaking as i went. the result was the most amazing banana bread i have ever repeat E-V-E-R had. best part, to hell with vanilla… we went Rogue and added Captain Morgan tattoo rum. a whole Tablespoon of it. i think you’re gonna dig it.
you will need:
3 brownish bananas (mashed)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter (semi melted)
1 egg (beaten)
1 T. captain morgan spiced rum
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1.5 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1 T. cocoa powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Combine first 8 ingredients (through coconut) in a mixing bowl and combine on low until incorporated. in a separate bowl whisk together flour, bkg soda and cocoa powder. add slowly to mixer bowl- combine on low speed. add chocolate chips and finish mixing by hand. add to a greased loaf pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 57 minutes. test with a toothpick- when comes out clean, it’s done! cool in pan for fifteen minutes, and then remove to a cooling rack or soft towel to cool completely on the counter. prepare to be blown away yo!

That looks really really good. Snowed in today, giving it a shot. Using bourbon instead of rum–out of rum. Can’t wait
