Ingredients

  • 4 overripe bananas mashed
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 8 tablespoons salted butter room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Spray a 9-inch loaf pan with baking spray (such as Baker's Joy) or coat with butter and dust with all-purpose flour, being sure to shake out any excess flour. Set aside.
  • Mix bananas and sugar with electric mixer until well blended. Add butter and beat until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each egg.
  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, and espresso powder in a medium mixing bowl until blended. Add flour/cocoa mixture to batter and mix until smooth. Add baking soda, salt, and vanilla extract and stir until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake until a wooden skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle, about 1 hour.
