My sinfully sweet chocolate banana nut bread :)

I tried this recipe for chocolate banana bread over the weekend and it was 'extremely' well received by the entire family.

I call it my 'sinfully-sweet-chocolate-banana nut bread'. Delicate, moist, melts-in-your-mouth, Chocolat-ey, Nutt-ey are just some of the words that come to mind. Do try it yourself and let me know how it turns out!

1 cup margarine, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
6 bananas, mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sour cream
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup shredded sweet coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans (it makes a LOT of batter!).
In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar and eggs. Stir in bananas and vanilla. Sift in flour, baking soda and cocoa; mix well. Blend in sour cream, chocolate chips & the coconut. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake in preheated oven for 75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of a loaf comes out clean.

Happy Baking!
