Equipment

  • Microwavable medium-size bowl
  • Loaf pan (9-inch)
  • Small bowl
  • Mixer

Ingredients

For the chocolate chip banana bread:

  • 0.25 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 bananas very ripe
  • 0.75 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1.5 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 0.75 cup chocolate chips

For the whipped mocha mascarpone topping:

  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese softened
  • 4 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp instant coffee amount depends on how strong of a coffee flavor you want
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 0.25 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

To make the chocolate chip banana bread:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.

  • In a medium-size microwavable bowl, microwave the butter until melted, about 40-60 seconds.
  • Mash in the bananas (the texture should be smooth) with the melted butter.
