Lunes de Chocolate-Chocolate Mondays

Hola Amigos! Ready for a brand new week? I am because it's one more week bringing me closer to the nice days of Spring and Summer I miss so much!
Today I'm bringing a classic I'm sure we all have made it before one way or another. This is my version of Banana Bread...of course with the twist of White Chocolate and Cashews. Ready...here are the ingredients

White Chocolate and Cashew Banana Bread

4 over ripped bananas, mashed
6 oz White Chocolate Shredded
2 oz Honey Roasted Cashews
1 Stick unsalted butter
1 TSP Vanilla
2 TBSP Vanilla Yogurt
2 large eggs
1 2/3 Cups Flour
1 1/4 Cups Brown Sugar
1 TSP Salt
1 TSP Baking Soda










Preheat your oven at 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 5x9 loaf pan. Set aside/
In a bowl mix by hand the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
In a different bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed, mix butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one by one until well integrated. Keep a spatula handy to scrape the sides of your bowl.

Add bananas, yogurt and vanilla. Little by little incorporate your flour mix. Once these ingredients are well mixed. Add your shredded chocolate and cashews.

 Pour the batter into your loaf pan and bake for 50-60 minutes ( I baked mine for 1 hour 15 minutes) until you stick a knife in the middle and it comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then remove from the pan and cool in a rack.

Listo,

Perfectly crispy on the outside, while soft and gooey on the inside.

I love mine with just butter, but I was feeling creative and with a sweet tooth so I melted some butterscotch with cream and drizzled it on top of a few slices!

It's so good in the morning with your cup of coffee...but also at anytime you feel like a simple touch of sweetness with an extra crunch!

There you go folks, I hope you like my version of your classic Banana Bread and have a chance to enjoy it with your family someday.  Wishing you all a Healthy and Productive week. 

Besitos,
Lizy

  1. This looks like an awesome variation of banana bread! Just wondering if it's 2 eggs or 4, since you have the eggs listed twice. Thanks for linking up to Simple Supper Tuesday this week!

  8. Hi Lizbeth!
    Just a note to thank you for the cute comment and entry of Cash and Tango in the snake toy contest! :)
    Once again your recipes and photos are wonderful. At this busy time in my life I don't have time to make anything classy like this, but I keep them in mind for later on! In the meantime it's just fun to come here and feast my eyes on the beauty of everything!
    Okay, back to the cats and grandkids!

  10. This looks yummy! But I'm allergic to nuts. Is it paramount for the recipe? Will it still taste good?

    1. Jennifer don't worry about the nuts! As you can see on the picture they were added on my little one's suggestion. He will eat anything with sugar sprinkled on it. It would make no difference in the flavor at all! Thanj You for stopping by and the invitation!

  11. Yum! This bread looks so delicious, and I loved your helper on his chair :) So cute! Thanks for sharing @The Weekend re-Treat!

  12. Yummy. I love cashews and chocolate but how do you think it would taste with dark chocolate (or would this throw it off entirely)? I think it is so sweet that you cook with your son. When I have time for it (and proper preparation, he is three) it seems like one of the best places to make memories.
    Thank you for linking up to our Comfort Foods Link Up party. Next week we are doing Saint Patrick's themed food but we are extending this to anything green or Irish (party opens 11). And the following week 30 minutes or less (party opens 18). Then the last party we will have will be Easter food (party opens 25). With the holiday ones it can be the commercial version of the holiday but it also could be what you will be feeding your family on those days. I hope we see you again.
