Two-Tone Banana Bread

Ingredients
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2
cups mashed ripe bananas (5 medium)
1
cup sugar
1/2
1
tablespoon dark rum or milk
2
ounces semisweet chocolate, melted and cooled
 
Chocolate-hazelnut spread (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, lemon peel, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Make a well in center of flour mixture; set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, mashed bananas, sugar, melted butter, and rum. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Transfer one-third of the batter (about 1-1/4 cups) to a medium bowl; fold in melted chocolate.
  3. Drop alternating spoonfuls of plain and chocolate batters into the prepared pan. Using a table knife or narrow metal spatula, gently cut through batters to marble.
  4. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning.
  5. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. If desired, serve with chocolate-hazelnut spread. Makes 16 servings.
