TWD: cocoanana bread
When I first saw that C0coanana Bread was a choice this past month for TWD, I was terribly excited. Then I was sad. Then I was excited again. In my mind there is a graph of my excitement with time on the x-axis and excitement on the y. A stepwise function.
But before I drift off to complete nerd-land, let me first explain my emotional antics.
I was really in the mood for banana bread. I went to the store. I bought bananas. I came home and set them on my counter to age. It was at this point that I noticed cocoanana bread was a TWD choice for the month. I fulfill my banana bread craving and get a TWD recipe off my to do list: major excitement.
Then it dawns on me the next day at work: coco-nana bread? But I don’t have coconut!!! You can’t make coco-nana bread without the coconut!!! It’s not even that I don’t like coconut. I just didn’t feel like going right back to the grocery store. Believe it or not this brought me down for a solid two days.
…until I meekly realized it was cocoa not coco and all was saved. I have plenty of cocoa powder hidden away somewhere. Major excitement levels were restored.
After all that, the bread did indeed live up to expectations. One person, who dislikes bananas even liked the bread. Another said it was better than brownies! It was some pretty delicious bread. There was a very faint banana taste that was super yummy with the chocolate.
