Double Chocolate Banana Bread with Sea Salt Caramel Glaze

Now that title is a mouthful. A very long name for an amazing loaf of bread! Just Chocolate Chips alone in Banana Bread makes you happy, then you add rich Dutch Process Cocoa and Sea Salt Glaze and you are over the Moon Happy! How do I know this about you? Because you are just like me! I am really trying to work on Recipe Development and I am so proud to bring this bread to you. Rich enough to be served as dessert but true to a regular Banana Bread perfect for Breakfast. Spread a little Nutella on a slice and you are in Chocolate Banana Bread Heaven. The idea came to me kinda as a no-brainer. I had 2 over ripe banana’s and I wanted to make banana bread with a scrumptious twist. Banana’s, Chocolate, Sea Salt and Caramel the light bulb has been turned on! You are going to love making this easy quick bread time and time again.

I love the hard crack of the caramel glaze. On top of each slice it is like a piece of candy on top. The bread is dense and sweet and the chocolate chips are in every bite! A truly decadent bread if there ever was one. I love all things Chocolate and Caramel. This Caramel sauce can also be made to be soft and sticky just leave out the Light Corn Syrup. For this unique and wonderful bread you may want to leave it in. Easy to transport to a Spring Brunch Gathering or delightful for a afterwork dessert party! The glaze makes a beautiful presentation.

Everyone in your family will consider you a hero for baking this up. I know mine did! I hope that you enjoy one of my first original recipes. As this was such a success I feel more confident to continue to create new and exciting things for you all!
