This Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ruins Every Other Cookie Recipe

  This Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ruins Every Other Cookie Recipe Really, though. These brown butter chocolate chip cookies are insane.When this recipe was submitted for our Readers' Choice Week contest early this year, I instantly knew I needed this cookie in my life. Browned butter and toffee in a chocolate chip cookie—are you kidding me?? Chocolate and caramel is a holy combination and the flavor essence of a good chocolate chip cookie. All chocolate chip cookie recipes play up or down both of these flavors by using more chocolate, darker chocolate, brown sugar, toasted nuts, honey, or molasses.

A cross between banana bread and blackout cake, it’s a beautiful creation and we’re so lucky to have it in our lives. It’s also the perfect way to procrastinate whatever chores you had planned this weekend , which may or may not include: finally cleaning your Banana Bread Chocolate Dessert Bake Cake.

Blackout Banana Bread . 23rd December 2017 By Chocolate Covered Katie 19 Comments. For this ultra dark chocolate banana bread , I got the opportunity to partner with HERSHEY’S Kitchens again to highlight one of my favorite baking “secret weapons” that I’ve loved for years.

This chocolate banana bread is actually cake, but you knew that, so let’s not speak of it ever again. A cross between banana bread and blackout cake, it’s a beautiful creation and we’re so lucky to have it in our lives. It’s also the perfect way to procrastinate whatever chores you had planned this weekend, which may or may not include: finally cleaning your shower curtain, commenting on celebrity Instagrams until you feel a human connection, or returning that thing you bought online that’s easier to return in person.

Cake is so much better than those things! Chocolaty, chocolaty cake. It looks like chocolaty is spelled wrong but nope, that’s how you do it. And in this new recipe, recipe developer Molly Baz said that what began as chocolate banana bread “turned into blackout cake when I decided to double down on the chocolate factor and use both cocoa powder and chopped chocolate.” Double. Down. Plus, a dash of whole wheat flour brings out the nuttiness of the chocolate. Clever, clever.

  Next-Level Banana Bread, Courtesy of One Basic Ingredient <p>It adds richness and offsets the sweetness. It makes an incredibly tender and moist crumb without being too dense.</p>And yet bakers are fierce in their allegiance to their favorite banana bread recipes. Most recipes riff on the same general formula, differing mainly in their use of fats (butter or coconut oil or sour cream, say) and sugar (brown or white) and proportions of liquid to dry.

This blackout banana bread is so deeply rich and chocolatey, you’ll seriously feel like you’re eating chocolate cake! For this ultra-dark chocolate banana bread , I had the opportunity to partner with HERSHEY’S Kitchens again to highlight one of my favorite baking “secret weapons” I've been using

This easy Chocolate Banana Bread is moist, tender, and a chocolate lovers dream! It is the BEST banana bread recipe. Our boys are little monkeys and I can’t keep enough bananas in the house to bake banana bread .

The sliced banana on top isn’t just for Instagram, it’s “a thing of beauty because essentially it gets ‘brûléed’ in the oven,” Baz said. “The entire top surface of the cake is sprinkled with raw sugar, which melts and caramelizes in the oven and lacquers the banana.”

That said, it’s a super flexible recipe and if you don’t have whole wheat flour, you can use AP in its place. If you’d prefer chocolate chips or your favorite wafers, sure. If you’re more of a yogurt instead of sour cream, fiiiine. But you might be missing out on that one.

A final note from Baz, if you’re still on the fence: “The recipe is a straightforward quick bread, but I will say that the aroma that comes from the oven while this thing bakes is freaking intoxicating. People were swooning all week during development.”
