This week’s TWD recipe, Coco-Nana Bread was chosen by Steph of Obsessed With Baking. I was toying with the idea of skipping this week, but I heard so many great things about this bread, I decided to give it a shot. Really glad I did; it eats almost like cake- really moist and tender, and the banana is barely noticeable. The best part, though, is how chocolaty it is – the chocolate chunks throughout the bread make it super moist and gooey. Yum!


This bread is pretty much more of a dessert than a breakfast food, but genius that she is, Dorie is trying her best to make all things chocolaty accepted as breakfast food. I vote yes. And I’m betting that this stuff will taste pretty darn good with your coffee in the morning. If you’d like the recipe, check out Steph’s blog – she’s got it posted.




  1. I agree, Dorie is pretty clever with her way of trying to sneak chocolate into breakfast. I’m so glad you enjoyed this! Thanks for baking along.

  5. Love how cheery your photos look! I agree with chocolate for breakfast (I make a chocolate chip walnut bread that is heavenly) but I want my banana on the side, not in my bread!

  6. Agreed – chocolate for breakfast can never be wrong 🙂 I made muffins, which made it even easier to justify this as breakfast food. Your loaf is gorgeous!
